Chemical Handling Policy

In light of some recent chemical misapplications that have occurred around town recently, I thought it would be helpful to briefly explain our chemical handling policies and what we do to prevent the mishandling of chemicals.

First, myself, and all staff members involved in handling chemicals are licensed with the Department of Agriculture as Certified Applicators.

In addition, we follow, very strictly, Troon's Chemical Handling Standards. I personally am involved in all chemical mixing, and all chemicals are kept in a locked storage facility equipped with a camera. We keep stringent chemical application records, and chemical inventory is checked weekly to ensure that everything is in its place. Application instructions, provided by the chemical companies, are always followed- we never spray anything "off label".

There is a tremendous amount of thought and care that goes into our operation as a whole, but when it comes to chemical handling, we take that thought and care to an entirely new level. You can never be too careful when it comes to chemical applications, and we have procedures and standards to prevent mishandling and misapplications.
