In October 2019, the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) announced nearly all agricultural use of the pesticide chlorpyrifros in California will end by December 31, 2020. In an effort to support growers through this transition, DPR and CDFA have assembled a group of individuals to identify, evaluate and recommend alternative tools for pest management. They will conduct three round-table style discussion workshops in January 2020 to elicit the public’s input on their work.

These public workshops will have Spanish translators.
