If agrochemicals are used incorrectly, they may harm our health and even kill us. They may harm our kids and pets and may contaminate the water.
Agrochemicals have labels of different colors.
- The red label is for extremely toxic agrochemicals
- The yellow label is for toxic chemicals
- The blue label is for slightly toxic chemicals
- The green label is for less toxic agrochemical
The poison in the agrochemicals can enter the body through the skin, but even more can enter through the mouth, eyes, nose, anus and scrotum.
When using a pesticide, always wear protective clothing and follow the instructions on the product label, such as dosage, timing of application, and pre-harvest interval.
