Precautions while using Pesticides
Some processors will not accept a crop treated with certain chemicals. If your crop is going to a processor, be sure to check with the processor before applying a pesticide. Pesticides can also enter our bodies indirectly through the food chain. Non degradable pesticides contaminate soil and water from where they are absorbed by plants. When human beings or animals eat these plants as food, these pesticides enter their bodies and affect their health.
