Add comment on:CA Court Approves Statewide Pesticide Plan to Control Harmless Apple Moth
CDFA justified its wide-reaching pesticide plan based on its unsubstantiated claims that the apple moth, which scientists say has been in California for decades, has to be controlled because it will harm crops and native plants and cause financial losses for the agriculture industry, even though the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) admits the moth has done no damage. The apple moth program allows the state to apply pesticides anywhere in the state, any time, with no notice to affected communities.
