German IVA to impart drift avoidance training
The German agrochemical industry association, the IVA, is to hold training sessions on avoiding pesticide drift into water sources. Crop protection advisers would be trained on avoiding drift and surface run-off of pesticides. They would in turn impart advice to farmers. The first event is to be held in Neustadt in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate on October 10th. That will be followed by similar events in Thüringia and Baden-Württemberg.
