Description:
This folder contains a spiral-bound notebook which holds a compiling of 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 head of N. C. State's School of Agriculture's Agricultural Chemicals Advisory Committee, Knight argued that the benefits of chemical pesticides outweighed the potential hazards. He and his colleagues presented before the North Carolina Department of Agriculture that with scientific innovations making pesticides less harmful to humans, a change in state legislation would improve the output of North Carolina farmers and its agricultural industry. The notebook contains a number of legislative acts and policy guidelines, in addition to proposed legislation. Also compiled are newsclippings capturing the sentiments of the time these decisions were being made, as well as memorandums and correspondence, newsletters and press releases, and committee reports.
