Description:
This folder contains a spiral-bound notebook which holds a compiling of correspondence and other office records related to North Carolina State University Entomology professor Kenneth L. Knight's work on easing restrictions on the use of pesticides in agriculture. As a member of N. C. State's School of Agriculture and Life Science's Agricultural Chemicals Advisory Committee, Knight made the argument that the benefits of using chemical pesticides outweighed the problems, especially when scientific developments were creating efficient pesticides that were less harmful to humans. He and his colleagues presented this before the North Carolina Department of Agriculture's Pesticide Regulation Subcommittee to convince them to change state legislation as a way to help improve North Carolina's farmers and agricultural industry. The notebook contains Knight's proposed "Pesticide Use and Application Act." Other records include memorandums and correspondence, articles (including editorials and newsclippings), legislative guidelines, newsletters, and the poem "In Balance with Nature" by John Carew.
