Farm Advisory Services And Pesticide Toxicity On Cotton And Peanuts In The Albemarle-Pamlico Watershed
AbstractAccording to a Virginia-North Carolina watershed survey, farmers view advisory services as having the effect of decreasing pesticide use. However, analysis of pesticide use shows that hired staff, scouting personnel, and extension agents are associated with higher pesticide toxicity applied to cotton while chemical dealers and scouting personnel are associated with higher toxicity applied to peanuts.
