BILL NUMBER:S2524

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in
relation to the use of pesticides by commercial applicators

PURPOSE: This bill seeks to allow for commercial pesticide applicators
in a dosage, concentration or frequency less than that specified on
the labeling.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 33-0725 of the Environmental Conservation Law that allows for
less than label use of agricultural pesticides is amended to add
commercial applicators.

Section 2 - immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, pesticides registered for use in New York
State may be used for agricultural purposes in a dosage, concentration
or frequency less than that specified on the labeling, but commercial
pesticide applicators may not. By allowing commercial applicators to
apply less than label rates, the total amount of pesticides being
applied in New York State will be decreased, providing economic and
environmental benefits to the people of the State.

Improvements in application technology have resulted in advances to
efficacy, deposition, drift reduction and improved targeting of
pesticides. The use of air induction nozzles, pre-orifice flat fan
nozzles, controlled droplet applicators, shield or hooded sprayers,
and chemical injection applicators all lead to more effective action
from pesticides. These tools provide the professional applicator with
the means to reduce application rates in certain situations.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2010: S. 7087 - Referred to Environmental
Conservation; A. 7600 - Referred to Environmental Conservation
2011-12: S. 2887-A Passed Senate (2011 and 2012); A. 450 - Referred to
Environmental Conservation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This effect shall take effect immediately.
