SPRAY SERVICE PROVIDER CONCEPT IN KENYA

A Spray service Provider is a farmer who has received specialized training on the responsible use and application of pesticides. The SSP is then expected to offer the spraying service to farmers at a fee. The SSP transfers the responsibility of pesticide application from the farmer thus reducing farmers’ exposure to pesticides while at the same time advising the farmer on the use of genuine products. The SSP also has a role in educating farmers on the need for environmental preservation by advising farmers on the proper management of empty pesticide containers as well as pesticide waste.
