Agrochemicals Usage in A Tropical Mid-Altitude Areas of JOS Plateau, Nigeria
Chuwang P. Z., Salako E.A
Abstract: Application of agrochemicals on the Jos Plateau has become very necessary due to diminishing availability of labour and the desire of farmers to synchronize farm operations for maximum production. This study was carried out to investigate the problems that led to some mishaps in the application of the agrochemicals. The findings revealed that 26 % of the agrochemical products sold to farmers are inadequately packaged and that about 29 % the labels on these packages were not very legible. The result also indicated that 22 % of the information read from the labels was not helpful in equipping the farmers for adequate agrochemical application.
