Yesterday, Western Growers testified against the Department of Pesticide Regulation’s (DPR) proposed regulation on agricultural pesticide use near schools during the Senate Environmental Quality Committee’s Oversight Hearing.

The proposed regulation, which is slated to take effect in September 2017, prohibits certain pesticide applications within ¼ mile of a school and requires notification of other pesticide applications within ¼ mile of a school.
