A campaign called BeSure! was launched this Spring to promote best-management practices to farmers and applicators who use neonic products. The campaign was launched by a coalition committed to neonicotinoid product stewardship called Growing Matters.
It reminds farmers and applicators to:
- Be sure to always read and follow the label when using treated seed
- Be sure to use the right amount of an appropriate seed lubricant to minimize dust
- Be sure to clean planters in non-sensitive areas and clean or cover up any seed spills
- Go to GrowingMatters.org for a wealth of free tips and reminders
