New Regulations for Neonicotinoid Use on Crops in California

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR) has adopted new agricultural regulations for soil and foliar applications of neonicotinoid use.

Effective Jan. 1, 2024, these regulations are intended to protect pollinators from the hazards associated with exposure to neonicotinoid pesticide products containing active ingredients:

  • clothianidin
  • dinotefuran
  • imidacloprid
  • thiamethoxam

Please note that product labels will not be updated with these requirements. Therefore, applicators and growers must follow the new regulations if applicable and more restrictive than the label.
