Registry of Pesticide & Fertilizer Sensitive Crop and
Livestock Production Areas
The South Dakota Sensitive Site Registry is a tool which can be used to help prevent the adverse effects from drift during pesticide or fertilizer operations.
The South Dakota Department of Agriculture has created this site to provide information about farms and ranches that would be adversely affected by accidental fertilizer or pesticide application or drift.
Commercial producers of pesticide sensitive crops and livestock are encouraged to register their sensitive production areas on this site. When a sensitive site producer registers a production area, an email is sent to each applicator who has registered a service area which includes that production location. This registry is designed to provide a simple way to inform pesticide applicators that your production area(s) is sensitive to pesticides and fertilizers and should be avoided. This site is not intended for homeowners.
Licensed commercial applicators are encouraged to register their service areas. Certified private applicators are encouraged to register their production areas if, after looking at the map, they see that there is a sensitive site close enough to their production areas that drift might be a concern. If your GPS unit is compatible with the GPX format, applicators can download a GPS file with the outline of all sensitive sites (including apiary) in your service area.
