Use the app and let us know
The ¡Etiquetas de pesticidas, ahora!™/Pesticide Labels, Now!™ app is free. It is a product of the Etiquetas bilingües de pesticidas™/Bilingual Pesticide Safety Project™. The upcoming app, PestiSeguro™/PestiSafe™ will be available as a premium product.
Agricultural stakeholders are an essential component to the App's success. The Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG), composed of producers/growers and industry organizations, as well as crop consultants, informed the pesticide label selection and app's development. Others, including farm managers and pesticide handlers participated in the app testing and evaluation.
