Concerns about aerial spraying of pesticides on Oregon forest land reached a new level recently, when a court ordered Applebee Aviation to stop spraying pesticides without a license.

The Oregon Department of Agriculture asked for the injunction, which may be the first request of its kind. 

Applebee is the company whistleblower Darryl Ivy briefly worked for last spring, when he documented, in video, helicopters spraying him with chemicals. 

Ivy sought medical attention and left the company; he joins us on the air with his story. 

Kevin Vanderlei, who worked for the same company, also visits with details of his exposure.
