Sensitive Crops Registry

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.

Be Aware of Your Neighbors

The following map indicates where all the registered sensitive crops are being grown in Douglas County. The map also show a 1 mile buffer area in which extra precaution when spraying is asked. If your house is located in the 1 mile buffer area you may want to notify your neighbors of the herbicide you are applying.
