I am the current owner and operator of a farm, ranch or other agricultural establishment where pesticides are used in the production of agricultural commodities. I understand that I am considered to be an Agricultural Owner according to the Worker Protection Standard which exempts me and my immediate family from certain requirements of the WPS.
I am considered to be an Agricultural Owner under the WPS. When I or my immediate family handles (or applies) a pesticide, personal protective equipment listed on the product label is used.
I am considered to be an Agricultural Owner under the WPS. If I employ workers other than my immediate family to perform tasks un-related to pesticide handling, I provide the following protections to those workers in addition to those required for agricultural owners and their immediate families.
