Support DEC's Long Island Pesticide Pollution Strategy
The Department of Environmental Conservation recently released their draft Pesticide Pollution Prevention Strategy for Long Island. This common sense document, based upon science, continues the stringent review of pesticide products, by DEC, for use on Long Island and recognizes that Long Island farmers, nurserymen, lawncare specialists, arborists and golf course superintendents have always been strong partners in reducing and controlling pesticide use on their farm and commercial operations.
The Long Island Pesticide Pollution Prevention proposal is a common sense plan to convene environmental and health experts and continue stakeholder participation to find strategies to better manage pesticide use on Long Island.
