Pesticides Additional Resources

Web Resources – More Information on Pesticides

The “background” section in this module was developed to provide basic knowledge on the theme.  In other words, important components and ideas are only highlighted and summarized.  The purpose of this section is threefold: 1) provide additional sources of information in order to deliver an alternative way of looking at a theme, 2) expand the general information provided in the “background” to facilitate better training preparation, 3) offer potential training handouts or supplemental material that can also assist training participants.  The brevity of the “background” section encourages the trainer to learning more outside of what is presented.  The “background” section is a good jumping off point.  Here are some suggested on-line resources that contain relative information, but please feel free to research others:
