Spraying crops with pesticides and herbicides is a necessary action to rid crops of unwanted pests and weeds. But for those unaware of proper chemical application, it can be dangerous. Extreme caution should be used when entering or working around the fields after they have been sprayed. Lingering traces of the chemicals pose a danger to the health of anyone that comes in contact with the fields. Our line crews often work along fields in the right-of-way or have to enter some fields and can be exposed to chemicals sprayed on nearby crops.
We are asking for your assistance in keeping our line crews safe by notifying our office or by posting the field to alert anyone in the area of possible chemical exposure. When posting, please list the date in which the level of chemicals will become harmless and the field can safely be entered. Your assistance in keeping everyone aware of any potential danger to chemical exposure is greatly appreciated.
