MINNESOTA ACTION ON NEONICTINOIDS

Minnesota's governor has issued an executive action banning the use of neonictinoid pesticides unless the farmer provides evidence of an urgent need to control a pest.  How this executive action will actually be enforced is open to question.  See the attached article.

I'm happy to see a governor taking this action. By the time the USDA is done studying neonics a lot more damage will be done. He's apparently a person with the greater good at heart.
