Spotlight on Organics: Protect Your Crops from Pesticide Damage with Driftwatch

Paul Ovrom at the Iowa Department of Land Stewardship (IDALS) will present information about driftwatch, a free, voluntary farm mapping service and how to sign up and add your fields to the database.  

Driftwatch is facilitated through FieldWatch™, a non-profit that provides online registry tools to promote communication between producers of pesticide-sensitive (i.e. organic and specialty) crops, beekeepers and pesticide applicators.  

The online FieldWatch™ registry supports ongoing stewardship activities to reduce incidences of off-target pesticide exposure. The registries provide state of the art mapping features that provide applicators the locations of registered specialty sites. The boundaries on map entries are user-submitted specialty/sensitive site designations. 

Registration is free and the service is easy to use.  For more information or with questions, contact IDALS at 515-242-6236 or sign-up at https://iowaagriculture.gov/SensitiveCropRegistry.

If you do experience exposure from pesticide drift, contact IDALS Pesticide Bureau at 515-281-8591 or [email protected] as soon as possible to file a report and initiate sample testing.
