Rob Faux, Iowa farmer and PAN Communications Manager, was recently invited by Practical Farmers of Iowa (PFI) to provide an update of his 2014 webinar titled Pesticide Drift: Response and Compensation. The new virtual event, titled Pesticide Drift: What to Know, was held on April 5, 2022, and is now available for viewing by the public. While this "farminar" has an Iowa focus, there is plenty of information that can be applied wherever pesticide misapplication is possible. This is the newest in an excellent series of resources pertaining to herbicide drift that can be found on PFI’s website.
In addition to his work at PAN, Faux owns and operates the Genuine Faux Farm near Tripoli, Iowa, where he produces a wide variety of certified organic produce for his community. His farm has had to respond to various misapplication scenarios over an eighteen-year period of operation.
