National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) reports: 
 
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking regarding application exclusion zones (AEZ).
 
The EPA proposal would make two major changes for corn growers. Modifying the AEZ so it is only enforceable on a farmer's property would replace the current regulation requiring farmers to ensure individuals are outside of the pesticide AEZ not only on their property, but off their property as well. The proposal would also exempt farm owners and their immediate family members from the requirement that they leave their home during certain pesticide applications.
 
NCGA will be participating in the rulemaking process to ensure the final rule works for corn growers and their farming operations.
