Counterfeit pesticides are illegal but oftentimes are extremely hard to spot because they are produced and packaged to look identical to legal products. However, the contents in the package are not accurate and may have less active ingredients than advertised or even have different ingredients that are cheaper or may be more toxic. It’s important to be aware of these products to keep customers and the environment safe. This session will cover the signs of counterfeit products and how you can help protect your company from potentially using these harmful products.
