Glyphosate Stakeholder Meeting

A recent amendment to the Environmental Conservation Law bans any state department, state agency, public benefit corporation or any pesticide applicator employed as a contractor or subcontractor to apply glyphosate on state property. However, there are exemptions to this ban to maintain critical infrastructure, manage roadside vegetation to ensure public safety, for the control of invasive species and pests of significant public health importance, and for research purposes. The law is effective December 31, 2021.

The DEC will hold a stakeholder webinar on October 27, 2021 from 1-3 PM concerning the pesticide regulations to implement this law. Stakeholders are invited to the webinar to hear about potential revisions, express views, and provide input in developing regulations. Registration for the webinar is required.
