Abstract

Recent weather conditions and poor decisions by commercial and private pesticide applicators have resulted in more drift complaints, to date, than normal. In discussions with Iowa State University Extension field specialists and Charles Eckermann (Pesticide Bureau, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship [IDALS]), it is apparent that pesticide drift complaints are widespread across Iowa. Eckermann reports that IDALS has received 34 drift complaints, the majority coming within the last nine days. Commercial pesticide application accounted for 30 of the complaints and four were attributed to private applicators.
