Statewide Pesticide Notification Regulation is One Step Closer To a Reality

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation just released modifications to its proposed pesticide application notification.

This will be a first of its kind system to provide advanced information on the planned applications of pesticides used in agriculture.

Referred to as restricted materials, the department say those materials are a highly regulated category of pesticides that have greater potential than other pesticides harm people and the environment.

Plus they require a county permit for use and carry significant restrictions on how and where they can be used and who can use them.

The department is holding a 30-day public comment period through August first along with  three hearings starting with the first one in Turlock on July 12th.
