California pesticide illness stabilises

Levels of pesticide-related illness in the US state of California in 2007 returned to those typical of recent years after the sharp downturn seen in 2006. The California EPA’s Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) investigated 1,479 cases in 2007, compared with 681 in 2006 and over 1,200 in the two previous years ( Agrow No 541, p 13). The DPR has launched a database, CalPIQ, which allows analysis of pesticide illness statistics between 1992 and 2007.
