The California Pesticide Regulatory Program
The preceding report on the “Use of Pesticides” prepared by the President’s Science Advisory Committee provides an excellent basis for evaluation of a state’s pesticide regulatory program. The report emphasizes the great gains that have been made in the production of food, feed, and fiber through proper use of pesticides. California leads the nation by a wide margin in the production of fruits and vegetables. Its agriculture is the most diversified in the world, with no one crop dominating the State’s farm economy. More than 140 crops are produced in commercial volume in California. When the various horticultural specialty crops are included, the total exceeds 200.
