Abstract

The aim of this paper is to determine whether training level affects the safe use of pesticides amongst pesticide applicators of Galician greenhouse farms (Spain). The relationship between pesticide applicator training and safe use of pesticides was statistically analyzed using non-parametric tests. Results did not reveal any relationship between the training level of pesticide applicators and the implementation of good practices in pesticide use. This paper questions current training systems for pesticide application and points to the need for the implementation of methods that assess and monitor the results and added value of training to pesticide applicators’ practices.
