Greater environmental protection and safety

As in other industries, all branches of agriculture are becoming increasingly pressurised to ensure greater environmental protection and safety with regards to agricultural chemicals. Government legislation now shifts responsibility to the user, and sugarcane growers should be aware of the heavy fines that can be incurred from the misuse of pesticides.

This information sheet was compiled using guidelines set by the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Association of South Africa (AVCASA), and is intended to provide basic instruction on the storage of pesticides. It in no way replaces the need for complying fully with label instructions.
