North Shore Pesticide Safety

North Shore Pesticide Safety
Jensen Uyeda, Josh Silva, and Jari Sugano of O‘ahu County Cooperative Extension teamed up with Lisa Rhoden of the North Shore Economic Vitality Partnership to conduct a pesticide education workshop at Turtle Bay on April 25. The North Shore Economic Vitality Partnership is seeking a GroupGAP (Good Agricultural Practices) license from the USDA, which allows farmers, food hubs, and marketing organizations to band together and pool their resources to achieve USDA GAP certification. One important aspect of that certification is pesticide education, so the agents worked in partnership with Ester Medrano of the Hawai‘i Department of Agriculture to cover worker protection standards (WPS), interpreting a pesticide label, personal protection equipment and proper signage.
