(EN) - Arizona Agricultural Pesticide Applicator Training Manual | arizona.edu | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"If you grow an agricultural crop in Arizona, you probably depend on agricultural chemicals. Agricultural chemicals provide growers and producers with increased crop production and protection. The agrochemical industry began about 50 years ago with an era of natural plant products such as pyrethrums and rotenones, followed by an era of long residuals such as Aldrin and DDT; more recently, the acutely toxic pesticides such as organophosphates and carbamates have been used more extensively, and now we are returning to natural plant components and their synthetic derivatives.

There is a growing public concern regarding agrochemicals and contamination of our food and water sources. In addition, there is concern about the growing volume of hazardous waste in a finite environment. As a pesticide applicator, your responsibility is to handle and dispose of pesticides safely and to minimize environmental contamination.

The core manual contains information that will help you learn safe and effective ways of using pesticides. It will also help you eliminate accidents that cause personal injury or environmental problems. The manual contains i formation you will need to know in order to become certified to use restricted-use pesticides in Arizona. This certification is necessary to buy, apply, or supervise the use of restricted-use products. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies products as restricted use if they can cause unnecessary harm to human health or the environment even when applied according to label directions and precautions. Added regulatory restrictions, such as required yearly certification training, are imposed on restricted-use pesticide applicators. This classification enables the EPA to keep these pesticides available for effective control by limiting their user to competent certified applicators who have established their ability to handle pesticides safely."
