The Agricultural Commissioner’s Office is teaming up with the California Department of Pesticide Regulation later this month to offer pesticide use compliance training for the commercial cannabis cultivation industry.
Humboldt County’s Cannabis Land Use Ordinance and current State law require that cannabis cultivators and employees that apply pesticides in cannabis cultivation operations do so in compliance with relevant pesticide use laws and regulations. The training will take place on Aug. 30 from 9 am til noon at the Humboldt County Agricultural Center located at 5630 S. Broadway in Eureka.
The training will cover the following topics in detail:
• Operator Identification Numbers
• Private Applicator Certificates
• Pesticide Use Reporting
• Employer Requirements and Worker Health and Safety
• Understanding and Interpreting Pesticide Labels
