Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. In addition to federal rules, pesticide manufacturers in Kansas are required to register their products with KDA before they can be sold in Kansas. KDA also licenses pesticide businesses, certifies private and commercial pesticide applicators, and registers pest control technicians, dealers, and government agencies that use pesticides. KDHE has developed a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) general permit for the discharges from applications of pesticides to surface waters of the state.
