Recently, the USDA’s NRCS which stands for the (Natural Resources Conservation Service) made some changes to its Conservation Enhancement Activity (E595116Z2) available to corn and soy farmers. This Conservation Enhancement is designed to “Eliminate routine use of neonicotinoid seed treatments to reduce risk of pesticides in surface water by reducing the total amount of chemical applied and reducing the potential for delivery of chemicals into water bodies that would impair water quality and fish and wildlife habitat.”

Is this a step in the right direction or an effort to put a band-aid on a gushing wound? Tune in to this week’s segment of The Neonicotinoid View with June Stoyer and Mr. Tom Theobald.
