Chemical Safety:

Crop protection chemicals are often necessary to protect a crop from severe damage by disease and pests. Always use chemicals in an humanely and environmentally safe manner. Using them prudently and following the label instructions can also lead to significant cost savings. The proper use and maintenance of application and safety equipment will also benefit you and your employees. Use only potable water in chemical applications as some chemicals will not kill off harmful pathogens that could be living in reservoir and river water.
