Ventura County Spray Safe

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018 at 8:30am - 1:30pm

Location: Ventura County Fairgrounds - Agriculture Building (Santa Cruz Hall)

This event is in the past.

Farm Bureau of Ventura County and the Spray Safe Committee present the sixth Ventura County Spray Safe event. 

Spray Safe is intended to prevent pesticide-exposure incidents and improve communication among growers, agricultural chemical applicators and farm employees. Attendees to this half-day program will learn about pesticide safety, application technology, regulatory issues and other topics from speaker, demonstrations, and breakout sessions.  The keynote speaker will be Brian Leahy, director of the California Department of Pesticide Regulation, and a nice lunch is also included.

The event is free, but advance registration is required. To register, you must download the form here, fill it out, and fax it to (805) 987-3874, or email it to spraysafe@farmbureauvc.com. Registration deadline is Tuesday, March 6.

The Spray Safe planning committee could not make this event happen without the financial support of Ventura County's agricultural community. To offset the approximately $20,000 it costs to conduct each event, we rely on the generosity of farm owners, pesticide applicators and advisors, supplier representatives, and anyone concerned about the industry's future.

 If you would like to become part of this important event, please make a check out to "Farm Bureau of Ventura County" and mail it to the attention of John Krist, CEO, P.O. Box 3160, Ventura 93006. Be sure to note that it's for "Spray Safe 2018." You may also phone us at (805) 289-0155 to make a contribution using a credit card. Contributions of any amount are welcome, and all donors will be recognized at the event. If you wish to be recognized, please email a jpeg of your company logo to Lisa Fox at lisa10486@aol.com.
