These standards will affect any
one who owns or manages a farm,
forest, nursery, or greenhouse
where pesticides are used in the
production of agricultural plants.
Even if the grower has no
employees, he or she will have
some responsibilities under these
standards. If workers are hired the
owner is obligated to train them in
pesticide safety even if they don’t
handle or apply the pesticide.
The effective dale for these
standards is April IS, and growers
need to leant what will be required
of them to protect themselves and
their workers.
Reservations for the meeting
are $lO to be mailed by Saturday,
