“…The lack of knowledge of using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) related to pesticides can also damage the environment through spraying and soil seepage activities. The study by Ali et al (2018); Berni et al (2021); Mahyuni et al (2020); Oztas et al (2018) reported that many respondents in their study had less education and also high illiteracy rates pesticideusing farmers. Therefore, it poses an increased health risk in some developing countries, such as Egypt at 55%, Kenya at 24%, and China at 22.8% (Ibitayo, 2006;Kimani & Mwanthi, 1995;Yang et al, 2014).…”

This indicates that to promote safe pesticide handling practices, farmers' knowledge about pesticide usage should be the primary focus of interventions, which should be complemented by skills, technology, proper applications, and infrastructure.…”
