Using Pesticides Safely
AREA’s plant pathology team and agronomists conducted a workshop on integrated pest management and pesticide safety training. AREA provided the participants a Ministry of Agriculture-produced technical manual for pesticide users in Haiti that served as a primary teaching tool, along with other training materials. This included information on integrated pest management, pesticide labeling, pesticide formulations, harmful effects and emergency response, personal protective equipment, transportation and storage, and disposal. No pesticides were used during the training.
