DriftWatch is a voluntary and free registry that allows for improved communication and collaboration between producers of specialty, organic and conventional (not tolerant to herbicides) row crops and pesticide applicators. Producers can map their sites and provide contact information to pesticide applicators. The registry makes it possible to map vegetables, grapes, nurseries, tobacco, industrial hemp, herbs, greenhouses, orchards, tree crops, flowers, as well as conventional soybean and corn. Pesticide applicators access the site to help determine the scope and location of specialty crops in their trade areas. Registered applicators can also sign up to receive email notifications when new specialty crop fields are added to their designated state, county or areas. As a primary stakeholder, state departments of agriculture in the states where FieldWatch has a presence provide a key leadership role in implementing, administering and financially supporting this unique and effective stewardship collaboration tool.
DriftWatch is used by more than 35,000 crop producers.
