Special Local Needs Experts Committee

The Special Local Needs Experts Committee is made up of University experts, pesticide registering company representatives, pest control advisors, the organic industry, the Arizona Game and Fish, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, the Pest Management Division and the Environmental Services Division (ESD).  The group reviews pesticide special local need labels and provides input to the ESD Associate Director.  Input covers the gamut of the experts represented on the committee: is there a grower need, is the pesticide available, are other pesticides available, uniformity in labeling, label language clarity, are there water issues, are there wildlife issues, and any other areas covered by the experts represented on the committee.  There are no binding decisions made, only scientific and real world input concerning the potential label.
