The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) will be holding two workshops in April to gather input from stakeholders to help determine what notification is appropriate when field fumigation occurs. Western Growers has already and will continue to express serious concern with the direction DPR is headed on this issue. Western Growers’ members are encouraged to participate in these workshops, as DPR will use this input to develop a new regulation.

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) is in the process of updating restrictions and use limits for 1,3-D (e.g. Telone). For the last several years, DPR has undertaken an exhaustive scientific review of 1,3-D as part of DPR’s requirement to update conditions governing its use in California.

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) issued a notice on June 2, 2015, that effective July 1, 2015, chlorpyrifos products labeled for production of an agricultural commodity will become California restricted materials. Applicators who wish to purchase, possess, or apply affected chlorpyrifos products will have to obtain a restricted materials permit from their County Agriculture Commissioner (CAC).
