PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN WHEN USING HERBICIDES


PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN WHEN USING HERBICIDES

In handling of herbicides, the following precautionary measures should be observed:
1. It should not be allowed to touch the body either during mixing or use. Therefore, a stick should be used to stir when mixing it with water in a bucket.
2. It should be kept away from food and sleeping rooms. The container containing the herbicide should be marked "danger". It should not be drank,
3. Do not eat or drink when using herbicides.
4. Always put on protective coverings such as hand gloves, overall and rubber boots before using herbicides.
5. Always ensure that you back the wind direction when spraying to avoid spraying onto yourself.
6. Do not spray herbicides on cultivated crops except weeds.
7. Wash your body with soap as well as all spraying equipment after use.
8. Contact a medical doctor when feeling uneasy due to the use of herbicides.








Modern, research in weed science has recommended the integrated weed control method for effective eradication of weeds. This method simply means the combination of two or more methods together in the control of, weeds. For instance, cultural practices) such as burning and tillage can be supplemented with pre-emergence herbicides application. That is. spraying the farmland when the weeds have not appeared.

Benefits of weed control--- read the full article on weed control method here
1. Overcrowding and shading of crops are removed.
2. The alternate host of pests and disease organisms of crops are: eliminated.
3. The crops will be able to make full use of nutrients, water, air and light.
4. Water loss from the soil through evapo-transpiration is brought low.
5. The farm will become clean for easy activities such as application of fertilizer and harvesting operations.
6. There is high yield from crops when weeds are controlled.
7. Weed control reduces contamination of crop products such as rice and vegetables.
