Pesticide handlers have never had an easy time keeping abreast of the regulations that affect them, but it is getting even more difficult as public pressure adds more layers of new rules. At the same time, there's a trend toward making the individual applicant more responsible for knowing the rules and for getting more training. This is the only volume that, in clear language, describes the system, the current issues in regulation, and the science behind them for the user. It can be helpful for the beginner, the veteran, or anyone who needs a reference encompassing the entire range of pesticide regulatory issues, such as groundwater, endangered species, recordkeeping, worker protection, and more. There's also an exclusive, first-ever compilation of the rules in all 50 states and the District of Columbia for the training and testing required to become a certified applicator-something that varies considerably from state to state.
