Southern Plant Diagnostic Network

http://www.sepdn.org/

The mission of the network is to enhance national agricultural security by quickly detecting introduced pests and pathogens. This will be achieved by creating a functional nationwide network of public agricultural institutions with a cohesive, distributed system to quickly detect deliberately introduced, high consequence, biological pests and pathogens into our agricultural and natural ecosystems by providing means for quick identifications and establishing protocols for immediate reporting to appropriate responders and decision makers. Our goal is to (i) establish a secure, regional network for the detection and diagnosis of plant health problems, (ii) extend and support sound public policies, implement rapid and accurate diagnoses, and response strategies, and (iii) provide leadership and training.

The Public and Pesticides - Exploring the Interface (Ohio State University)

http://www.worldcat.org/title/public-pesticides-exploring-th...

Expectations are high among agricultural groups that our society knows, understands, and appreciates what is involved in meeting the nation's vast food and fiber needs. In reality, the public does not have a clear understanding of the production system and in particular how agriculture and science interact to do this job. There are public expectations about what is required in meeting standards for food quality and safety. In general, the public seems to be asking, "What are you doing for us about this?" This report is based on the belief that there must be greater professional and personal attention to relationships among our multifactorial stakeholder society. The findings will be best used as a discovery or discussion document. Arguments about pesticides, pro or con, are not a subject for this report. It is about improved relationships and dialogue leading to a better informed public and better public policy decisions.

Aerial application of clopyralid demonstrates little drift potential and low toxicity to toads.

http://californiaagriculture.ucanr.org/landingpage.cfm?artic...

A research article published in California Agriculture (Univ. of California) magazine, Vol. 58, No 3., 2004. Written by Joseph M. DiTomaso, Jessica R. Miller, Guy B. Kyser, Art W. Hazebrook, Joel Trumbo, David Valcore and Vanelle F. Carrithers. Abstract -- "The herbicide clopyralid (Transline) is commonly applied by air to control yellow starthistle, a noxious weed, in California. In laboratory studies, clopyralid toxicity in Fowler’s toad was low, indicating a wide safety margin when used under field conditions. In addition, monitoring of clopyralid drift following aerial application demonstrated that 98-foot (30-meter) buffers between treatment areas and water sources provided adequate drift protection for an adjacent stream and vernal pools. Nevertheless, to ensure that movement of the herbicide to water sources is minimized, it is important to prevent application error, particularly accidental encroachment into established buffer zones. This study demonstrated that drift potential for clopyralid was minimal even with an aerial application and a slight downwind breeze toward sensitive aquatic sites. It is also the first report demonstrating a high tolerance to clopyralid in larval toads." Provides a valuable insight into the use of buffer zones to reduce pesticide spray drift.
