Aerial Pesticide Application Monitoring

Aerial pesticide application was monitored during the fall of 1997 and the spring of 1999. The final report, which was published in March 2000, found that the Forest Practice Rules as currently written, are appropriate for protecting water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and riparian vegetation.    

Pesticide Regulation

The Department administers forest practice chemical rules, which protect water quality and other natural resources on forestland. Contact the Department if you think natural resources have been damaged by pesticide applications on forestland.
The Oregon Department of Agriculture, Pesticide Division (ODA) administers rules relating to applicator licensing, proper application, and pesticide labeling. Contact ODA if you think pesticides have drifted or moved across property lines and have damaged human health or property.
Learn more about pesticide regulation, application, toxicology, labels, exposure to pesticides and emergency contact information.
