While the City does not have a formal standard that governs the design or size of agricultural buffers, in practice, the buffers that have been implemented have ranged from 100 to 300 feet. The County's practices on buffers have been primarily implemented by the County Agricultural Commissioner in the form of spray restrictions on agricultural parcels. These restrictions require no spraying in an area on selected agricultural parcel that can range from 100 to 500 feet from the edge of the property. The actual width is based on the specific chemical applied, the prevailing wind conditions and the presence of sensitive adjacent land uses (such as schools). In cases in which a non-restricted chemical is being applied, a cooperative agreement is often developed with the grower to adapt spraying schedules and notify neighbors to minimize impacts on surrounding areas. bullet100 Things You Should Know About DDT - -, Discovered by accident, DDT became one of the greatest public health tools of the 20th century.

Filter strips, field borders, grassed waterways, field windbreaks, shelterbelts, contour grass strips, and riparian (streamside) buffers are all examples of conservation buffers. Buffers slow water runoff, trap sediment, and enhance water infiltration in the buffer itself. They also trap fertilizers, pesticides, bacteria, pathogens, and heavy metals, minimizing the chances of these potential pollutants reaching surface water and ground water sources. Buffers also trap snow and reduce blowing soil in areas with strong winds. They protect livestock from harsh weather, offer a natural habitat for wildlife, and improve fish habitat. Wooded buffers can also provide a source of future income. NRCS describes buffers in terms of prevention of runoff and protecting water quality.

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. bulletProceedings of the International Conference on Pesticide Application for Drift Management -, Proceedings list of the International Conference on Pesticide Application for Drift Management held on October 27-29, 2004 in Waikoloa, Hawaii.

It is largely voluntary at the present time and relies on cooperation between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), EPA Regions, States, and pesticide users. The limitations on pesticide use on this site are not law at this time, but are being provided now for your use in voluntarily protecting endangered species from harm due to pesticide use. We encourage you to use this information. We also welcome your comments. The Endangered Species Act is intended to protect and promote the recovery of animals and plants that are in danger of becoming extinct due to the activities of people. Under the Act, EPA must ensure that use of pesticides it registers will not result in harm to the species listed as endangered or threatened by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, or to habitat critical to those species' survival. To implement the ESPP, labels of certain pesticides will direct users to bulletins with information similar to what appears here. This program will protect endangered and threatened species from harm due to pesticide use. bulletLeinbachs Inc. -, Leinbachs is a regional equipment dealer (located in Winston Salem, NC) with some unique information on their website pertaining to calibration and equipment demonstrations.
