The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is in need of real numbers and statistics regarding the use of fungicide application on-farm to help decide what exposure times are for various activities. Each activity may lead to worker exposure to any pesticide that has been applied to the crop.

The exposure often depends on the time a worker is exposed, such as average number of hours a day and days in a season. Some activities occur before any pesticide is sprayed such as tying and pruning grapes, so these should be ignored. Scouting a crop may be an hour twice a week on a farm all season. Please give a number or a zero if that activity does not occur on your farm.

Please complete this survey for each crop that you grow.
