Stephen Gran, the Hillsborough County Extension Director is seeking funding to sponsor an Agriculture Pesticide Collection Day, like Hillsborough County has done in the past. The funding agency has requested that we seek some information from the industry to justify funding the event.
Would you please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested with the answers below.
1. Do you have cancelled, suspended or unusable pesticides in storage awaiting proper disposal?
2. Are proper disposal methods difficult to find?
3. Is proper disposal a costly and regulatory burden for farmers?
4. Would you participate in an agriculture pesticide collection event if it were offered at no cost to farmers?
5. If yes, approximately how many pounds of pesticides do you have to dispose of?
