Safe Handling of Pesticides: Tips for Applicators

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, May 11, 2016

Pesticides are widely used across the industries we serve. They offer protection against pests that transmit diseases which can harm crops, plants, humans and pets. There are many different types of pesticides such as herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides. Each is quite effective at controlling pests when used appropriately. 

Handling pesticides safely can have a huge impact on the efficacy of your application. There are, however, risks involved when using any type of chemicals. The applicator responsible for spraying the solution must be properly trained on how to handle, transport, mix, apply, and store these chemicals.

The University of Georgia College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences Cooperative Extension Service has made available a thorough guide on handling pesticides. At Sprayer Depot, we’ve done the homework for you. Read below for our quick recap on Safe Handling of Pesticides.
