I am looking for information on buffer zones, no-spray zones between conventionally farmed fields and sensitive/organic fields. Is there any research supporting positive effects and benefits of buffer areas between these two conflicting methods of farming. Does anyone have first hand knowledge of how buffer zones can be used to settle disputes between adjacent farms. I am dealing with a farmer that has a heavy chemical dependency. He is unwilling to apply his chemicals when winds are moving away from us. He refuses to observe a buffer area because as he says, if he observes a buffer around our property then every other neighbor with a drift complaint will also expect a buffer. There must be a profit incentive to get this guy to respect others. He sees the loss of a single square foot of corn as a threat to his manhood and profits.
