China plans QR codes for pesticide packaging

The China Crop Protection Industry Association (CCPIA) has drafted a set of proposed rules for the usage of Quick Response (QR) codes on pesticide packaging, reports the national Chinese newspaper, the AgriGoods Herald.

The CCPIA hopes that the QR codes will help simplify pesticide product information and increase product safety.
