North Carolina Environmental Stewardship

The North Carolina Environmental Stewardship program was initiated with a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and has been developed and administered by CropLife Foundation. These fact sheets were produced for workers using pesticides in North Carolina, but are full of useful information for anyone dealing with agricultural chemicals.  We also included fact sheets specifically for North Carolina’s Christmas tree growers (denoted by NCCTA).
