Ever wonder where farmers and their employees learn to safely use sulfur and other chemicals in fields and orchards?

Employers have to provide a certain number of hours in annual training, but individually hiring instructors for every type of chemical is expensive. Instead, the Agribusiness committee of the Lodi Chamber of Commerce organizes Farm Safety Day each year to fulfill some of those required hours and keep the community up-to-date on state regulations. It might sound like a heavy load, but the reality is a few hours of farmworkers talking shop with volunteer trainers they have likely known for years.
