Pesticidewise aims to help pesticide users stay safe.

We aim to support both pesticide users and their trainers and seek to:

  • raise awareness of the hazards and risks of using pesticides
  • explain what pesticide users can do to manage these hazards and minimize the risks
  • show users how to apply good practices
  • provide tools to make it easier for users to do so.

Our current focus is on spraying pesticides when using a knapsack sprayer. In the future we will develop materials for other application methods and crops. We will also translate the site into many languages.
