Abstract/Contents:"Students at Montana State University conducted a survey and determined that most producers were concerned about the long term health risk from using pesticides. In addition, most producers were not using sprayer protection equipment and the equipment was not readily available in most areas of the state. Numerous makes and models of protection items including gloves, goggles, respirators, coveralls, aprons, and foot coverings were assembled for evaluation by a panel of 20 producers. A final kit, the MSU Sprayer Protection Kit, was assembled and contains 2 pairs of neoprene gloves, vented goggles, respirator, 3 pairs of diposable coveralls, a PCV apron and latex foot covers. Attractive order blank brochures were printed and distributed throughout the state by extension specialists, 4-H club members and county agents. The selling rights to the kit were recently transferred to a small firm in Montana and it is being aggressively promoted."
Note:Published with the approval of the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station.
