Web-based Distribution of Electronic Labels: Implications for Pesticide Safety Education

Amy E. Brown

Abstract


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is considering migrating certain pesticide label information to the Internet, possibly including the Directions for Use section. The program has merit, but will have significant impacts on the user community and on pesticide education. Differences in user category, technological capabilities, and other considerations will affect feasibility and compliance. Constructive input from pesticide safety educators will help maximize the chances for successful implementation.
