Abstract

The use of pesticides initially was governed by the Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticide. The State of Kerala in India had been using pesticides to eliminate malaria, and in 1962, the Plantation Cooperation of Kerala began spraying pesticides by plane regularly three times every year. After that, the problems caused by pesticides were increasingly widespread due to uncontrollable usage and distribution in Kerala. Until around the 2000s, there were many problems caused by it, and the impact of uncontrolled pesticide use both directly and indirectly affected humans and the environment. Therefore, the Government of Kerala began drafting local regulations regarding pesticides based on the new Governance of The International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management. The local regulators set up the necessary measure to accommodate the new regulation on pesticide management that became effective in Kerala, India.
