Pesticide compliance remains at record level in North Dakota for 2nd straight year


BISMARCK, North Dakota — Farmers' compliance with state and federal pesticide laws and regulations is at a record level in North Dakota for a second straight year.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says 84 percent of inspections last year found full compliance. The rate the year before was 81 percent. Before that, the record was 80 percent in 2008.

Goehring says his department's outreach and compliance assistance program is a big reason.

The findings are included in an annual report the state submits to the federal Environmental Protection Agency.
