This project researched stakeholder knowledge about pesticides in Himachal Pradesh, as well as pesticide use on farms in the region. We documented perceptions of farmers, government officials, and vendors, investigated relevant policies, documented application practices, and applied a method to test for chemicals in market produce. Our findings indicated the presence of pesticides on sampled fruit and vegetables, many of which have been banned in other countries. Moreover, farmers were not always aware of dangers and regulations.
