||Agrichemical safety and handling information: A users' perspective
||Feb. 1997, Vol.13, No.1, p.19-25. 6 ref.
||A questionnaire survey of 80 New Zealand farmers revealed that little safe handling information on agricultural chemicals, other than that on the product label, was reaching the users. Main findings were an inability to read product labels because of small print or damage, a demand for supplementing product labels with pictograms, and the need for more data on environmental and health risks. The point of purchase, salesperson and product label were the preferred points for transferring advice.
