ABSTRACT
The article discusses the conflicts arising out of California governor Jerry Brown's plans to spray a pesticide to kill the Mediterranean fruit flies that are destroying the farm produce. California's farmers are arguing that to destroy the Mediterranean fruit flies, aerial spray of Malathion in the infested areas is required. However, residents of the infested areas are opposing the spraying because scientists suspect that the pesticide can cause cancer and birth defects.
