PESTICIDE USE and regulation have been major public issues for many years. Environmental groups, the pesticide industry, legislators, and growers are frequently at odds over pesticides. Nonetheless, basic questions remain unanswered. What are the fundamental issues and choices regarding pesticide policy? What is the tech nical basis for making policy decisions? The time has come for a rational public debate on these questions. Although national pesticide policy derives from the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodcnticide Act (FIFRA) and regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), inadequacies in current legislation and regulation are becoming increasingly apparent.
