Nice to meet you and congratulations on the new effort.

I assume your new pesticide program will contain policies around pesticide use, and specific pesticide products? Depending on the public/private nature of your irrigation district, you may need a public pesticide applicator's license in order to make applications.

Brian Tuck is with OSU Extension in Hood River, and he worked on this publication. He may be more helpful as you pick specific products to be part of your program. brian.tuck@oregonstate.edu

If you need something more, let me know with more specifics. I'll be happy to help!
Thank you again, Kaci
