Practical Solutions for Pesticide Safety

The Practical Solutions for Pesticide Safety (PSPS) guide is a collection of over 30 solutions and ideas identified on farms. Each solution sheet is available in English and Spanish.

PNASH works with farmers, educators, and researchers across the Northwest to test and develop solutions originally developed by growers for themselves. These practical solutions are then shared back to the industry through an online platform.

The current project focuses on handheld application equipment and builds upon our previous Practical Solutions for broadcast spraying.

Each Practical Solution:
1) reduces personal pesticide exposure;
2) is practical, compatible, convenient, adaptable, safe, novel, and meet regulations; and
3) supports the requirements and training needs of the revised US EPA Worker Protection Standard.
