The Federal Environmental Pesticide Control Act and Its Effect on the Food Industry
Wilbur Jr., D.A.
This paper discusses the major provisions of the Pesticide
Control Act and their importance as applied especially to
the brewing industry. The requirements of the new certification
program of pesticide applicators and how they specifically
apply to the brewing industry are reviewed. The recent
relaxation in the use of residual insecticides in food processing
areas is briefly considered, followed by a short discussion
of the records required to keep in compliance with the Act.
