Remember to Register Your Sensitive Site

Package of Bees
The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship has created a registry for producers to list the locations of their pesticide sensitive crops and for beekeepers to list the locations of their apiaries.  This registry is used to create an on-line directory for use by pesticide applicators to identify the locations of sensitive crops and apiaries and minimize the potential for pesticide drift damage.

Make sure to register your organic site or apiary for 2014.

Even if you have registered in the past, this must be completed yearly.
