The Pesticide Stewardship Alliance or TPSA was created to help promote the recycling of the ubiquitous 2.5-gallon pesticide jugs that were rapidly becoming an eyesore throughout farm country.
TPSA has changed with the times, focusing on the much-larger refillable pesticide containers used today. But it has also grown to take on other pesticide issues as shown at its 2018 annual meeting in Memphis, Tenn., in early February.
From the opening address by Richard P. Keigwin Jr., the director of the Office of Pesticide Programs at EPA, to the closing session on Section 24C state labels for the products for new herbicide-resistant crops, this year’s annual meeting focused on how to deal with the D-word – dicamba – and to a lesser extent with 2,4-D applications on herbicide-resistant crops.
Here are some photos from this year’s TPSA sessions.
