AMERICAN SOYBEAN ASSN, ASTA UPDATE EPA ON SEED TREATMENT STEWARDSHIP
American Soybean Association (ASA) reports:

ASA joined leaders from the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) in a meeting with several Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) staff to update them on ASTA's education campaign about seed treatment stewardship.

ASA has joined ASTA in promoting the campaign, which aims to raise awareness with farmers about the importance of stewardship of treated seed. The campaign has included video and print material for applicators, farmers and pesticide safety educators.

Additionally, ASTA attended several state soybean association winter meetings to talk about the campaign.

EPA has supported these efforts, and the meeting served to reflect upon the past year's efforts and the work going forward. Most of the education campaign is focused in the winter months, as farmers are focused on seed purchases and planting decisions.

Also attending the meeting were staff from CropLife America and other farm groups.

ASA appreciates working with ASTA on the campaign and to an even more successful year ahead.
