Avoiding ugly confrontation, Maui mayor reaches agreement with Monsanto on pesticide disclosure

Avoiding the ugly political battles that have consumed Kaua’i and the Big Island, Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa reached agreement on pesticide disclosures with Monsanto. The deal requires Monsanto to disclose what types of restricted-use pesticides it’s using and how much. Monsanto must also disclose how it’s dealing with dust and soil erosion. The company will meet with county officials each quarter regarding pesticides and other community issues. Kauai County and Hawaii County took a more confrontational approach, passing bills that heavily restrict the use of pesticides and genetically modified crops.
