US EPA seeks comment on ESA petition

The US EPA is seeking public comments on a petition from western growers seeking improvements to the consultation process on pesticides under the Endangered Species Act. The Growers for ESA Transparency (GET) submitted the petition in September ( Agrow No 601, p 25). It called for the Agency to establish clear and equitable procedures for notice and comment on effects determinations for endangered species, and subsequent actions including draft biological opinions and potential product restrictions. The petition is similar to one submitted by Cheminova, Dow AgroSciences and Makhteshim-Agan Industries ( Agrow No 584, p 12). The GET petition is open for comment until February 22nd 2011.
