Washington Friends of Farms & Forests

We Help Washington Grow

Public Policy

We represent your interests to our state’s legislators and policymakers.


Our large, diverse membership gives us a unified voice and a better opportunity to share our message with our State’s legislature, regulatory agencies, the media and the public: Pesticides, when used responsibly and according to label instructions, are beneficial and safe.

Science and Regulation

We keep up on the science and regulations letting you focus on your business.

Pesticide and fertilizer use can be affected by many things – lawsuits under the Endangered Species Act or the Clean Water Act; changes in regulations at the state departments of Agriculture, Ecology and Labor & Industries; bills passed by the Washington State Legislature.


Your business may also be affected by regulations governing transportation, labor, taxes and more.  We monitor all of these and keep you up-to-date on what you need to know.

Media

We monitor the media for stories that may affect public perception of your business.

You’ll have a heads-up on important breaking news through our member communications system.
