Project Title & Description
PERFORMANCE PARTNERSHIP GRANT
The purpose of this agreement is to support the Arizona Department of Agriculture (ADA) in ensuring that pesticides are manufactured, sold, used, and stored according to FIFRA. ADA will protect human health and the environment from harmful pesticide exposure by providing information about the appropriate use of pesticides; ensuring pesticide products are used according to the EPA registered label and applicable regulations; conducting inspections; taking appropriate enforcement action when violations are found; and subawards as necessary. The recipient will forward inspections to EPA for action as outlined in the cooperative agreement. ADA will implement the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) to protect agricultural workers from harmful pesticide exposure by providing information about and ensuring compliance with label requirements and the WPS regulation. ADA will also provide training and certification to applicators of restricted use pesticides. This project also includes activities designed to protect surface and ground water resources from pesticide contamination, including pesticide disposal activities.
