Webinar on ‘Drone Based Pesticide Applications: Implications on Health and Regulation’
The Central Insecticide Board (CIB) has clarified in 2019 that spraying pesticides with drones is illegal in India. Recently the Plant Protection Division of Department Of Agriculture And Farmers Welfare has issued standard Operating Procedure and approved a list of pesticide formulations for drone spraying. However, the relevant legislation on aerial spraying is lacking in India. Application of chemical pesticides being the predominant mode of pest control in India, use of drones for pesticide application, would end up in dangerous situation, which the agricultural department or farmers or general population would not have any control. Exposure to people and public health as well as environmental contamination is major concerns as aerial spraying of pesticides is point source pollution. In this light, Pesticide Action Network India is organising this webinar on 7thJuly 2022 from 4 pm to 6 pm.
