The article discusses issues related to pesticide spray drift addressed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA administrators have suggested that drift issues should be addressed in the context of the rulemaking which is under way with the Clean Water Act and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act. The EPA has put forward statements of rulemaking recently, dealing specifically with the issues of pesticides sprayed on or over water. The EPA has also issued field implementation guidance trying to clarify the process by which information will be provided to producers.
