Pesticide Drift

Pesticide drift may be technically illegal in most states, but it happens all the time, and can be very hard to prove. If you think you or your garden have been affected by pesticide drift, this short video reveals what to do about it.

Pesticide drift occurs when pesticides from nearby farms drift onto your garden or property. Symptoms can include damage to your garden plants and crops, as well as health impacts to your family. If you’re an organic gardener, it can also make you really mad!

While it may occur often, it’s usually not easy to prove who is responsible. You may be able to test your plants or soil to determine if pesticide drift is a factor in your gardening problems.

About the author 

Rose S.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
