AExpert Answer

The use of pesticides, whether applied to conventional or genetically modified crops, is strictly regulated in the US by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Before a pesticide is registered by EPA for any type of application, EPA requires that an extensive list of data requirements be fulfilled.  These requirements include, but are not limited to, evaluations to determine the fate of the pesticide in the environment, metabolism of the pesticide in representative crops, and levels of the pesticide and its metabolites remaining at harvest of a specific crop as well as assessments of potential hazards to the environment and humans.  EPA performs an in-depth review of all data submitted for a pesticide registration to ensure that the pesticide, when applied according to label directions, can be used with a reasonable certainty of no harm to human health and without posing unreasonable risks to the environment.
