Note from Melinda Hemmelgarn:
I’m writing an article for ACRES USA on drift and am interested in speaking to farmers who have suffered crop damage, financial loss, or harm to personal health due to pesticide drift. I’m curious to know how different states handle farmers’ losses, what kind of compensation exists, and thoughts on new 2,4-D and dicamba-resistant crops which appear to be coming soon to fields near us.
Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to share your experience and offer suggestions for advocacy. Thank you.
