DOI: 10.1016/s0166-1116(09)70042-1


Abstract Making the spray mixer, loader, and applicator workplace safe during the pesticide treatment of citrus groves is a task that will require an educated foreman or supervisor and compulsory obeyance by the worker of his instructions and stewardship. It will not be possible to educate all field workers in all aspects of the safe handling of pesticides. Equipment changes in nurse rigs and spray rigs will be required, also, to ensure a safe working environment in the pest control of citrus.
