EPA Proposes Labeling to Control Pesticide Drift, Evaluates Petition
WASHINGTON, DC, November 4, 2009 (ENS) â€“ Pesticide labeling to reduce off-target spray and dust drift was proposed today by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The new instructions are aimed at improving the clarity and consistency of pesticide labels and help prevent harm from spray drift, the toxic spray or vapor that travels from treated agricultural fields and into neighboring communities.
The agency is also requesting comment on a citizens' petition to evaluate childrenâ€™s exposure to pesticide drift.
