LABELS FOR COMMERCIALLY TREATED SEED MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ADDITION TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS STATEMENTS:

“Exposed treated seed may be hazardous to birds and wildlife. Dispose of all excess treated seed and seed packaging or containers by burial away from bodies of water and in accordance with any local requirements. Cover, incorporate, or collect treated seeds spilled during loading and planting. DO NOT contaminate bodies of water when disposing of planting equipment wash water.”

THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY REQUIRES THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS ON CONTAINERS CONTAINING TREATED SEED:

Exception: If the treated seed is soil-injected or soil-incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will  be no contact with anything that has been treated. PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves contact with anything that has been treated, such as plants, soil or water is: coveralls, chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material, and chemical-resistant footwear.”
