Committee Sets Goals for
Environ merit Improvement
State and Federal officials
have identified general priority
objectives for improving
agricultural and forestry en
vironments through coordinated
research and extension efforts.
Three areas to receive in
creased attention soon are:
—lmproved techniques and
methods of applying chemicals to
reduce runoff and pollution.
—Establishing guidelines to
control animal wastes on feedlots
and farms, and
—Collecting data needed to
register safe and effective
pesticides for use on specialty
crops grown on smaller areas.
The development of a
cooperative effort in these areas
has been agreed on by a coor
dinating committee which
represents the nation’s Land
Grant Universities, the En
vironmental Protection Agency
(EPA), and the U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA). Dr. John
L. Buckley, EPA, and Dr. David
J. Ward, USDA, serve on the
committee, the latter as
One of the first actions will be
to identify areas where
cooperative research is needed,
officials said. They also will
compile and improve existing
guidelines, and get this in
formation to appropriate

Regarding better techniques
for applying chemicals, com
mittee officials explained that
there are several measures
already in limited use.
These include applying ultra
low-volume pesticides to hold
down pollution, foams to keep
pesticides in place and soil and
vegetation practices that help
keep fertilizers in place The
committee seeks to improve
these and other techniques and to
get such information to people as
well as data on the best time of
year to apply pesticides, the
effect of drainage and ground
cover on runoff, and other fac
Existing guidelines aimed at
control of animal wastes on
feedlots and farms need to be
greatly improved, officials said.
Factors to be considered include
storage of solid wastes during
winter when there would be
runoff if wastes were scattered
around the feedlot or farm, how
often feedlots should be cleaned
and best techniques for doing the
job; location of surface drainage
and filtration of differing soil
There are a number of less
persistent chemicals that might
be used on certain specialty
crops, but they have not been
registered for such with EPA
because the companies do not
consider it economically feasible
to carry out the tests necessary
The amount of pesticides they
could sell to treat small, specialty
crop areas just doesn’t make it
worthwhile from the economic
standpoint, officials explained.
To overcome this obstacle, the
Universities, USDA and EPA
jointly will consider ways to
carry out the necessary research
that would enable registration of
safe products for commercial
