UMass Extension Pesticide Education Program

The Pesticide Education Program works closely with the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources to educate pesticide users about safe application, state regulation and proper use of pesticides. The project team is also part of a New England Pest Management Network that collaborates to gather information on pest management and pesticide use for important crops and sites throughout New England, and to identify pest management needs and inform state regulations. This project helps agricultural and green industry businesses stay competitive and relevant.
