Public Comment Period Extended on Draft Guidance Documents for Evaluating Pesticide Spray Drift: Proposals Would Further Protect Communities near Fields Where Crops Are Grown
For Release: March 28, 2014
EPA is extending the public comment period on two draft guidance documents for evaluating ecological and human health risk assessments for pesticide spray drift. The comment period will now close on April 30, 2014, to provide additional time for commenters to prepare their responses.
Following the public comment period, EPA will analyze the comments, make appropriate modifications to these policies and finalize them. The policies will then be used in pesticide risk assessment.
