Film Clip on Selling Pesticides to Unsuspecting Farmers in Sabah

Fri, 05/08/2011 – Jude Fanton

This is one of a dozen videos that we shot and posted in our ‘Pushing Pesticides’ playlist on Seedsavers Youtube Channel. We are in Kundasang a little village, in the highlands of Sabah, Borneo. Nothing evil on the part of the seller. He does not know himself that appropriate clothing should be worn when using pesticides. Selling them is just a way for him to make a living. His job is to convince his clients that it is easy to induce their pineapples to flower with hormones. He does not concern himself with the dangers of their use.
