MSU Pesticide News - October 12th, 2015
EPA is announcing stronger protections for two million agricultural workers and their families working on farms, forests, nurseries, and greenhouses. This is a revision to the 1992 Agricultural Worker Protection Standard. See the complete EPA news release and all related details.
Farmers and states will be given time to adjust to these new requirements. Most of the revisions will be efective approximately 14 months after the rule publishes in the Federal Register. EPA will announce an ofcial date once the rule publishes in the federal register.
