Sensitive Crops Registry

Sensitive crops information in Douglas County, Kansas.

Kansas growers of sensitive and organic crops are increasingly concerned about drift damage from commonly used herbicides. To help reduce the risk of herbicide drift, Douglas County, Kansas and Kansas Department of Agriculture host sensitive crop registries where growers can make their sensitive crop locations known. Herbicide applicators can use this registry to identify where extra care should be taken to protect these vulnerable crops.

We ask that you register with both the states registry and our local registry.
