Q. What is being done to promote safe use of paraquat?
A. Like all CPPs, the manufacturers of paraquat are subject to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) code of conduct. This code lays out the responsibilities in distribution and use of the various stakeholders in the industry. You can view the code of conduct on the FAO website at: http://www.fao.org/docrep/005/y4544e/y4544e00.htm
