Stewardship for Illegal Pesticide Residues in Food and Water

Abuse can hurt. Influential sections of society expect business houses to play regulatory roles. You may be held responsible even if an entity on which you have no control disregards a label prescription.


The pesticide industry has traditionally focused on scientific testing, quality manufacture, and extension efforts.

Is it time to extend the range and scope of business stewardship?

Computers and satellites make it possible to track safe and judicious pesticide use better than in the past.

Business integration is another initiative that can protect consumers effectively from abusive residues.

Endogram protection near harvest is another productive route to correct deployment of pest management agents.

Do you have better ideas? Please post below or email

Everyone wins if pesticide abuse is eliminated.
