Saturday 2-b

New crops resistant to more volatile herbicides such as 2,4-D are likely to make pesticide drift and off-target application worse than ever. We’ll discuss how to recognize pesticide drift, document its effects on your farm and your family’s health, report drift incidents, and work with insurance companies to be compensated for crop damage. We’ll also discuss ways to reduce the risk of misapplication or drift and lessen the likelihood of conflicts with neighbors.
