The US EPA has exempted certain pesticides that pose little to no risk to man or the environment from Federal registration under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). These pesticides are known as FIFRA 25(b) exempt, or minimum risk, pesticides. 25(b) exempt products are allowed for use on a broad range of crops without restrictions on application timing or volume like many EPA-registered products. This is very attractive for producers and applicators. FIFRA 25(b) exempt products allow applicators to be flexible and adjust their plans according to the season and situation.
