Hand Weeding Variance Program

The Hand Weeding Variance Program was established by SB21-087 in response to improving agricultural worker health.   Through this program, agriculture employers may apply for a variance certificate to allow the workers they employ to hand weed more than 20% of a worker’s weekly work time.  This page provides program information and a link for agricultural employers to apply for a variance certificate.
