For other chemigation operations, the individual shall be present at least hourly. An individual is not present unless the individual can effectively monitor whether the chemigation system is properly functioning, whether it is properly calibrated, whether it is causing pesticide overspray or drift, and whether it is creating an unreasonable hazard to persons, property, or the environment. If a pesticide label imposes additional observation requirements, the operator of the chemigation system shall comply with those requirements.
