NICK BAKER, ALEXANDRA VAN NISPEN, CLAIRE SUH, JOLIE HUYNH, + CONOR ROSS

The team proposes the implementation of a Pesticide Field School (PFS) in Argentina to promote best practices for the use of glyphosate, a key pesticide that yields significant benefits if used correctly, but can result in serious health consequences if improperly handled. In order to prevent Argentina from banning use of the chemical completely, the team suggests that a carefully constructed education program can mitigate the risks of glyphosate use.
