    COUNTY ACTION PARTNERSHIP (CAP) Application COUNTY ACTION PARTNERSHIP (CAP) Application

County Farm Bureau A has partnered with three other county Farm Bureaus (B and C), the Florida

    Department of Agriculture, Three Chemical Companies and the University of Florida to maintain and improve producer’s ability to use pesticides in Florida. We also want to improve the perception of safe

    pesticide use in Florida.

    Pesticide use across the state has been under attack for years. The public needs to know that growers are professionals and are using chemicals safely. Producers need training to get this story out to the public. We want to identify one Farm Bureau member in each county and train them as a spokesperson for the

    safe and continued use of ag chemicals. We will identify all state and federal regulatory agencies with authority over ag chemicals and organize a tour/workshop for them to learn how farmers are applying pesticides. We want to create a template for county Farm Bureaus to use related to safe pesticide use.

We will train 40 county leaders to make presentation to the media and local groups about the safe and

    necessary use of pesticides for modern agriculture. We will increase the awareness of the safe use of

    pesticides among the members of the FFBF and local rural communities. We will interact with regulators

    increasing their knowledge of on-farm pesticide use and application and show the need to reduce

    unneeded regulatory burdens on farmers.

Improve the relationships between the partners and improve the public’s perception of ag chemical use.

    We will print a final report that will include a template for local organizations like county Farm Bureaus

    to use with regulatory campaigns.
