EPA will decide by September 30 on regulations over pesticide-treated seeds

The Environmental Protection Agency says it will decide by the end of September on its regulatory oversight of pesticide-treated seeds.

Kyle Kunkler is the director of government affairs with the American Soybean Association. “It would be very unfortunate and a travesty both for agriculture and the environment if EPA decides to grant the petition.  We think it wouldn’t be consistent with the law either.”

He says pesticide-treated seeds fall under the Treated Article Exemption in the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
