The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), because of its responsibility for registering pesticides for use in the U.S., is subject to the restrictions of federal Endangered Species Law. Before a pesticide can be registered, and subsequently marketed, EPA must guarantee that specific pesticides will not place an endangered species in peril. The Division of Plant Health of the Kansas State Board of Agriculture has received a grant from EPA to enforce the protection of listed species from pesticide exposure in Kansas.
