Ag lobbyist says EPA pesticide pilot project is problematic for farmers

An ag lobbyist says all the focus right now is on the farm bill, but there are bigger challenges ahead for farmers.

Mary Kay Thatcher senior lead for federal government relations with Syngenta says she has her eyes on the recent moves from the Environmental Protection Agency.  “If I’m really sitting back and thinking about what’s farmers’ pocketbooks, we ought to be worried about these regulations on pesticides coming out of EPA,” she says.
