Save the Date

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) and the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) will hold a series of statewide public workshops to hear ideas about how farming communities can transition away from the use of the pesticide chlorpyrifos. In October DPR announced that virtually all agricultural use of the pesticide chlorpyrifos in California will end by December 31, 2020.

In order to support the transition to safer, more sustainable alternatives, DPR and CDFA have convened a work group to identify, evaluate, and recommend alternative pest management solutions. In January 2020, they will hold three round-table style discussion sessions to gather public input on their work to date.

The workshops, which are open to the public, will have Spanish translators and will be held as follows:
