                       Warren County, Kentucky
                          The information in this pamphlet is similar to
                          what the U.S. Environmental Protection
                          Agency (EPA) expects to distribute once our
                      Endangered Species Protection Program is in
                      effect. The limitations on pesticide use are not
                      law at this time, but are being provided now for
                      your use in voluntarily protecting endangered and
                      threatened species from harm due to pesticide
                      use. We encourage you to use this information.
                      We also welcome your comments.

                       The Endangered Species Act is intended to
                      protect and promote recovery of animals and
                      plants that are in danger of becoming extinct due
                      to the activities of people. Under the Act, EPA
                      must ensure that use of pesticides it registers will
                      not result in harm to the species listed as
                      endangered or threatened by the U.S. fish and
                      Wildlife Service, or to habitat critical to those
                      species' survival. To accomplish this, the EPA
                      expects to  implement program requirements
                     beginning  in 1994. This program will protect
                     endangered and threatened species from harm due.
                     to pesticide use.
                      EPA requests your comments regarding the
                     information presented in this publication. Please
                     let us know whether the information is clear and
                     correct. Also tell us to what extent following the
                     recommended measures would affect you typical
                     pesticide use or productivity. This information
                     will be considered by EPA during the final stages
                     of program development.

           About This Publication

            This publication contains a County Map
           showing (he Area within the county where
           pesticide use should be limited to protect listed
           species. These areas are identified on the map by
           a shaded pattern. Each shaded pattern
           corresponds to a species in need of protection.
            The Shading Key shows the name of the species
           that each shaded pattern represents and often
           describes the shaded area. The area may be
           described in terms of Township, Range, and
           Section or by giving details about the habitat of
           the species.
           The first column of the 'Table of Pesticide
           Active Ingredients" lists the active ingredients for
           which them should be limitations on use to
          protect certain species. The next columns are
          headed by the shaded pattern of the species with
          Codes list<;d underneath them.
           The Code indicates the specific limitation that
          is necessary to protect the species. The section
          titled Limitations on Pesticide Use explains the
          code.

          Does This Information Apply to You?

           To determine whether this information applies
          to your use of a pesticide, review the questions
          below. The information applies only if you
          answer "yes" to both questions:
             Do you intend to use pesticides within or
             near the shaded area on the county map?
             Are any of the ingredients listed on the front
             panel of your pesticide product label named
             in the 'Table of Pesticide Active
             Ingredients"?
           If you answer "yes" to both questions, you
         should follow the instructions on "How to Use
         This Information" to determine if you should
         limit use of the pesticide to help protect listed
         species.
           If you answer "no" to either question, you
         should follow the usage directions on the
         "feticide nroduct label.

How To Use This Information
1)   On the county map, find the specific shading patterns that cover, or are close to, the area where you intend to apply pesticides.
2)   Read the descriptor in the Shading Key for those patterns; this may further identify the area involved.
3)   In the "Table of Pesticide Active Ingredients," locate the active ingredients in the pesiticide you intend to apply.
4)   Locate the codes to the right of the active ingredient name and under the shading patterns that apply to you.
5)   When using the pesticide, you should follow the limitations indicated for those codes described under "Limitations on
     Pesticide Use."                                                                             .
6)   If you are applying more than one listed active ingredient or applying a listed active ingredient in an area with more than one
     shaded pattern (species), multiple codes may apply. If so, you should follow the most restrictive limitation.
7)   Read the information on Reducing Runoff and Drift on the back of this pamphlet.

                                    Reducing Runoff and Drift
Careful use of pesticides can diminish harm to the environment and reduce exposure of endangered and threatened species
to pesticides. Using pesticide runoff and drift measures may be helpful in keeping more of the applied pesticide on the
field and may also lower your costs of pesticides.
Runoff
Where possible, use methods which reduce soil erosion, such as limited till and contour plowing; these methods also
reduce pesticide runoff.
Where feasible, use application techniques such as T banding and in-furrow techniques, which incorporate the pesticide
into the soil.
Pesticides with ground water warning labels are more likely to enter ground and surface water than those without such
warnings. When possible, use a pesticide that does not contain a ground water warning label.
Keep Informed about changing weather conditions, and try to  avoid pesticide application when heavy rainfall is expected.

Wind direction, speed, and evaporation are important factors in reducing drift. Most importantly, pesticides should be
applied when the wind direction is away from areas of concern; try to avoid application during periods of high winds.
Avoiding applications during the hottest part of the day, when evaporation is highest, will further reduce drift.
When high winds and excessive evaporation are not present, a drift retardant may be useful for aerial applications.
Using the largest droplet size compatible with the pesticide coverage will reduce drift. Typically, higher spray volumes
will also result in less drift.
