If growers/workers spray Mycotrol, BotaniGard, Kocide 3000, Badge X2, Serenade and other organic or conventional pesticides, and especially if they will apply Priaxor Xemium, I encourage thier attendance at one of our Worker Protection Standard (WPS) training sessions. Farm workers and handlers should be trained annually in WPS. As part of the Section 18, WPS training is a requirement of Priaxor application on coffee in Hawaii. We have three available training sessions:
