The Seller Role in Improving Pesticide Safety Standards

I met Shri Ransingh s/o Dharam Singh Saini from village Joshi Chohan, post office Bahalgarh, district Sonepat (pincode 1310021) on the 04th August 2008.

Shri Ransingh is a typical face of modern India. He is a veteran cultivator, and a dynamic retailer for farm inputs as well. I spoke to him about pesticide safety, rural health, and related matters. Please use the following link for an audio record of the interview:


I took away the following lessons from this encounter:

1. Top retailers are powerful change-agents to promote pesticide safety.
2. Health care facilities in villages need urgent upgrading.

What do you think? Please post below.
