Act Now to Oppose New Pesticide Use Regulations

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) recently released a proposed regulation to impose extensive restrictions on the use of agricultural pesticides within a quarter-mile of K-12 public schools and licensed childcare centers. Ag Council opposes the proposed rule and is asking DPR to take into account the significant regulatory protections already in place in California.

TAKE ACTION NOW — THE DEADLINE TO COMMENT IS DECEMBER 9, 2016 AT 5 P.M. Join our effort by clicking HERE to easily send an opposition letter to DPR via Ag Council’s Action Center.

If this regulation is allowed to take effect in September 2017, certain pesticide applications will be prohibited within a quarter-mile of school sites and additional notification will be required of other pesticide applications.
