Pesticide Use & Regulation
|Pesticide Use & Regulation|
Pesticide use is a necessary part of non-organic agriculture. The San Diego County Department of Agriculture, Weights & Measures enforces the laws which regulate the use of pesticides.
Because of the hazards posed by pesticides and the specific knowledge involved in treating insect and disease infestations, agricultural producers must show they are knowledgeable about their use and safety by obtaining a Certified Private Applicators License from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation.
