WPS COMPLIANCE PRODUCTS


PERC is the Pesticide Educational Resources Collaborative, a cooperative agreement between the EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs and University of California Davis Extension, in collaboration with Oregon State University. The objective of the PERC is to implement the development, revision, or update of pesticide safety materials and resources that prevent and reduce pesticide risks to humans, communities, and ecosystems through education and outreach targeted toward agricultural workers, pesticide applicators, and others, through partners and stakeholders. For more information about PERC contact Suzanne Forsyth at spforsyth@ucdavis.edu or 530.757.8603.

The Association of Farmworker Opportunity Programs (AFOP) has been an advocate for migrant and seasonal farmworkers in the United States since 1971. The thread that binds the Association is the concept that training and education can provide the launching pad to a better and more stable life for the workers who plant, tend, and harvest the crops that Americans consume at their tables.
