Active Campaigns

 

Before you edit: We encourage you to add campaigns using the following format: "Organization and name of campaign (link): Description. Comments on campaign (by other users)." If you add a new Category, use the "Format" menu and choose "Heading 3". When possible, include new campaigns in the existing category that is the best fit. If this sounds too confusing, please add your link anyway and someone will help clean it up!

Drift

  • PANNA's Drift Campaign: The drift campaign is focused on the problem of airborne pesticide drift (both spray drift and volatilization drift). Specific, active areas are the Multiple Drift Catcher projects that measure pesticide concentrations in the air, and the Campaign on Highly Drift-Prone Fumigants that is influencing the U.S. EPA's fumigants cluster assessment.
  • PANNA's Campaign for Review and Reversal of Methyl Iodide Registration: A hot button in the world of drift is that U.S. EPA registered methyl iodide — a new fumigant touted as a replacement for methyl bromide which is being phased out due to ozone layer damage — on October 5th, 2007. As with all fumigants, methyl iodide is highly drift-prone. In some respects, methyl iodide is an easy target...methyl iodide is widely recognized as mutagenic, the State of California recognizes it as carcinogenic, USDA ARS researchers have identified it as a possible groundwater contaminant, it is neurotoxic, and EPA's toxicological analysis contains numerous unwarranted assumptions. The only thing that methyl iodide has going for it is that it is so reactive that—unlike methyl bromide—it reacts before reaching the stratosphere and damaging the ozone layer. OCA and UFW have taken a very active role in asking for review and reversal. Many state-level organizations are picking up the fight in their states.
