Overview

Pesticides refer to the chemical compounds that are used to control or kill pests that hinder the activities of humans. In agriculture, pesticides are mainly used to kill or control pests that destroy crops or properties such as ants, cockroaches, flies, wasps, rodents, unnecessary weeds and fungi. In public health, pesticides are used to control or kill pests that are carriers of dangerous diseases such as mosquitos, rodents and microbes. Pesticides are important parts of both agriculture and public health that help ensure the quality of harvest and the health of the public.

Too much of pesticide is not good for the crop and can even lead to pesticide poisoning, and at times death. However, farmers and other agricultural personnel must have a thorough knowledge of how to use pesticide effectively, and not cause harm to the environment. The Diploma in Agricultural Pesticide Awareness at QLS Level 4 is helpful for farmers, farm workers and farm managers who want to gain awareness on agricultural pesticide and learn how to avoid harm to the environment and other organisms.
