St. Louis, MO – The Pesticide Stewardship Alliance (TPSA) has developed a Treated Seed Life-Cycle Management Guidance Map, which can be found on the TPSA website at https://tpsalliance.org/resources/treated-seed-disposal-map/. A simple click on a state will yield reliable resource information including who to contact to find out about disposal options in that state. Proper disposal of treated seed can be challenging. These issues can be helped just by knowing the right person to call. The TPSA guidance map also compliments the American Seed Trade Association “Guide to Seed Treatment Stewardship,” by providing the state resource information.
The Pesticide Stewardship Alliance (TPSA), founded in 2000, is an organization of federal, state, and local governmental agencies, educational and research institutions, public organizations, private corporations, and individuals that are actively involved in different aspects of pesticide stewardship. The goals of TPSA are to increase the effectiveness, efficiency, and longevity of various pesticide stewardship efforts.
The 2023 Pesticide Stewardship Conference is scheduled for February 7-9, 2023 in Reno, Nevada.
