As farmers face growing economic and environmental pressures such as new and growing insect, pest and crop disease threats, military conflicts and global supply chain inefficiencies, it is more imperative than ever to ensure farmers and other pesticide user groups maintain access to safe and effective products. The ability of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to execute a robust pesticide registration, registration review, and, when applicable, Endangered Species Act consultation process based in the best available science is a critical step in achieving this goal.

As regulatory partners with EPA, the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture stands ready to assist EPA in ensuring U.S. farmers and public health officials have access to a broad range of technologies and pesticides, reviewed and approved in a scientifically sound and transparent manner.
