Kansas growers of sensitive and organic crops are increasingly concerned about drift damage from commonly used pesticides. To help reduce the risk of pesticide drift damage, The Kansas Department of Agriculture hosts this sensitive crop registry where growers can make their sensitive crop locations known. Pesticide applicators can use this registry to identify where extra care should be taken to protect these vulnerable crops.
To have a site listed, a producer must meet certain criteria, and submit a completed Request to List Herbicide-Sensitive Crop Location(s). For more information go to Sensitive Crops: Registration.
For information on commonly used herbicides frequently involved with drift onto sensitive crops go to Sensitive Crops: Hormone Type Herbicides.
To learn where sensitive crops are grown in Kansas, see our Sensitive Crop Registry.
