Current Pesticide Usage by Kyeongbuk Farmers and Applicability of Plant Protection Certificate
Young Keun Yi
An array of surveys was designed to improve current Pesticide Management Law and Acts by investigating farmers`` usage of pesticides and by assessing applicability of Plant Protection Certificate to register local pesticide markets or related businesses. This study indicates that most farmers choose pesticide recommended by local pesticide market dealers. This survey also indicates serious misuse or overuse of pesticides by farmers probably due to inappropriate recommendations. To guarantee rational use of pesticides by the end users, most experts in the plant protection areas have realized the importance of the Certificate as a license to register the local pesticide markets. To the end, current Pesticide Management Laws and Acts need to be revised to ask pesticide-dealing workers to take the Plant Protection Certificate.
Key Words: Pesticide usage, Plant protection certificate
