When applying pesticides, wear the protective clothing and use the equipment the label requires. To prevent spills, always check application equipment for leaking hoses or connections and plugged, worn, or dripping nozzles before adding pesticide. Before applying, clear all people, pets, and livestock from the area.
Take care to avoid the potential for drift, or off-target movement in the air.
Vapor drift occurs when a pesticide evaporates from a sprayed surface. Drifting vapors can travel some distance and cause injury!
Spray the pesticide uniformly no more than 3 to 4 feet to your side. Direct the spray pattern so you do not walk through the spray.
When you finish, wash up: yourself, the clothes you wore, and the PPE you used.
Be careful that the cleaning water does not damage crops. Do not dump the rinse water in one place where it will be concentrated and may become a pollutant. NEVER RINSE PESTICIDES DOWN THE DRAIN!
If a pesticide gets on the skin, rinse as quickly as possible. Remove all contaminated clothing. If a pesticide is inhaled, get the victim to fresh air right away.
In case of poisoning, call a physician and your area poison control center. Have the container in hand to identify what the victim was exposed to or took.
With friend’s and family, in answering “Why Organic”, in fun I have ased them if they would want to stand in a field with there head faced syward with their mouth open while a plane flew over spraying the fiels. Laughing, none of them wanted to.

Vegan: I Love my Animals alive, not on my plate
Abhigya is the reason for his family becoming vegan. He stood silently one night while his mom was watching a video of tortured animals and cows in slaughter houses, and though he was only 3 years old, it was enough for him to understand what was going on. He vouched never to touch milk again. His parents thought that it was a trick for not drinking milk and started tempting him with chocolates. “Does chocolate have cow’s milk in it?” he would ask. To which his mom and dad replied, “Yes, most of them”. “Then I won’t have chocolates either!” His firm decision was clear and his parents had no choice but to follow his steps. Shy but very confident in his beliefs, Abhigya has been attending school in Bangalore for the past 2 months. He confronted a teacher in a test paper, where he explained: “I don’t like the zoo because animals are tortured and live in cages, I like forests where animals are free.” His answer was enough to get zero marks on the
question and many more scoldings from teachers due to his no-nonsense answers. He’s a very smart and happy child. At 5 and a half years, he reads at the level of a child in 4th grade.
