Universal Citation: KS Stat § 2-2457a (2017)

2-2457a.Statement of claim of damage from pesticide application; filing with secretary; forms; effect of failure to file. (a) Because pesticides have short residual life, a person damaged from pesticide application shall file with [the] secretary, within 60 days after the date the damage was discovered, a written statement, on a form prescribed by the secretary, claiming that the person has been damaged. The statement shall contain, but shall not be limited to, the name of the person responsible for the application of the pesticide, if known, the name of the owner or lessee of the land on which the pesticide was being applied at the time the alleged damage occurred, if known, and the name of the owner or lessee of the land on which it is alleged that the damage occurred.

(b) The secretary shall prepare a form to be furnished to persons for use in such cases and such forms shall contain such other information as the secretary may deem proper. The secretary shall send a duplicate copy of this statement to the person responsible for the application of the pesticide, if known, and to the owner or lessee of the land to which the pesticide was being applied at the time the alleged damage occurred, if known, or other person who may be charged with the responsibility for the alleged damage.

(c) The failure to file a report pursuant to this section:

(1) Shall create a rebuttable presumption that the alleged damage did not result from the pesticide application;

(2) shall not preclude the maintenance of any criminal or civil action; and

(3) shall not constitute a violation of the Kansas pesticide law.

(d) This section shall be part of and supplemental to the Kansas pesticide law.
