Current Status of Pesticide Legislation
Hyland R. Johns
Abstract: The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act of 1947 (FIFRA) was amended October 21, 1972, to assure proper use of pesticides. This new law (P.L. 92-516) is imposing strict regulations on our industry. Anything said or written about pesticide legislation must be dated, because of changes occurring almost daily. Today's presentation (August 22, 1974) will cover development since August 1973, when the author addressed the ISTC in Boston, reviewing pesticide legislation.
