The goal of the SD Department of Agriculture (SDDA) is to assure safe and effective storage, use, and disposal of pesticide products.
The SDDA, by agreement with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is responsible for enforcing the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). (7 U.S.C. §136 et seq.) FIFRA relates directly to the manufacture, distribution, sale, use, and disposal of pesticide products.
