Community Guide to Recognizing and Reporting Pesticide Problems
DPR's Community Guide to Recognizing and Reporting Pesticide Problems is designed to make it easier for people to get help in a pesticide emergency and resolve pesticide use complaints and concerns. The 36-page booklet also has easy-to-understand information about how DPR and the County Agricultural Commissioners oversee the safe use of pesticides in California. And the guide tells you how to find information on pesticide use in your areas.
