Pesticide drift brochure available; ISU McNay Field Day Sept. 18
A new brochure that offers guidance on pesticide drift, how to prevent it and what to do if drift affects farmers or rural residents is available for free in print and online from Practical Farmers of Iowa. The brochure, "Protect Your Right to Farm: Pesticide Drift Response Guide for Iowa's Farmers and Rural Residents," explains what pesticide drift is; how to recognize when drift has occurred; proactive steps farmers and others can take to prevent drift; and detailed instructions on what to do in the aftermath of a drift episode.
