Before spring fieldwork starts in earnest, growers of organic and other sensitive crops should consider signing up for the Driftwatch registry offered by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

By registering with Driftwatch, farmers identify the locations of their sensitive crops and pastures. Commercial fertilizer and pesticide applicators can then check the database and take special care to avoid that land when applying chemicals in the vicinity of these crops.

For more info, go to www.driftwatch.org.
