US EPA rejects request for more drift protection

The US EPA has rejected a petition filed by environmental and farmworker groups calling for more stringent safety standards to protect children from pesticide drift. The Agency's current approach for addressing and regulating pesticide drift is working and does not warrant revisions, the EPA said in its March 31st response to the petition. A federal court ordered the Agency in November to formally respond to the petition (Agrow No 676, p 15).
