Abstract

Telephone interviews were conducted on a random sample of 164 dairy farmers knowledge and beliefs about pesticide hazards, intentions to use precautions, perceptions of pesticide safety peer norms, perceived self-efficacy to prevent personal exposure, and use of protective equipment. Self-efficacy and risk perception appear less relevant to safety behavior than other variables. Future research should focus prospectively and on national samples.
