                        Interim  Measures
                        Miller County, Missouri
                           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 implement the Endangered
                       Species Protection Program, labels of certain
                       pesticides will direct users to bulletins similar to
                       this sample pamphlet. 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 the 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 there should be limitations on use to
            protect certain species. The next columns are
            headed by the shaded pattern of the species with
            Codes listed 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
             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
             If you answer "no" to either question, you
            should follow the usage directions on the
            pesticide product label.

 How To Use This Information
1) On the county map, find the specific shading pattern(s) that cover, or are close to the area where you will apply pesticides.
2) Read the descriptor in the Shading Key for those pattern(s); this may further identify the area involved and will indicate the
3) In the tablc{s) of pesticide Active Ingredients, locate the product or the active ingredients in the pesticide product you
   intend to apply.
4) When using any of the identified pesticides, you should follow the limitations indicated on the table. On some of the tables
   the use limitation(s) will be the same for all chemicals and on others there may be a code referring you to different use
5) 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 limitation(s) may apply.  If so, you should follow the most restrictive limitation.
6) 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.
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.
