PESTICIDE APPLICATION IN ENCLOSED SPACE PRODUCTION
This publication focuses on guidelines for pesticide application, selecting the proper pesticide equipment, and most importantly, keeping everyone safe in an enclosed space production facility.
What is Enclosed Space Production?
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), enclosed space production is defined as production of any agricultural plant indoors or in a structure or space that is covered, in whole or in part, by any nonporous covering that is large enough to permit a person to enter (CFR Title 40, Part 170.305). Enclosed space production occurs in many different types of facilities including greenhouses, mushroom houses, high tunnels, railcars, shipping containers, and warehouses.
