Where the department finds <br>that the administrative regulations are necessary to carry out the purpose and intent <br>of this chapter, the administrative regulations may relate to the time, place, manner, <br>and method of storage and application of the pesticides and storage of fertilizers, <br>may restrict or prohibit use of pesticides in designated areas during specified <br>periods of time, and shall encompass all reasonable factors which the department <br>deems necessary to prevent damage or injury by drift or misapplication to: <br>(a) Plants, including forage plants, on adjacent or nearby lands; <br>(b) Wildlife in the adjoining or nearby areas; <br>(c) Fish and other aquatic life in waters in reasonable proximity to the area to be treated; and (d) Pollinating insects, animals, or persons. (2) In promulgating the administrative regulations, the department shall give consideration to pertinent research findings and recommendations of other agencies <br>of this state and of the federal government. (3) The department may by administrative regulation adopt a list of &quot;restricted use pesticides&quot; for the state or for designated areas within the state if it finds that the <br>characteristics of the pesticides require restricting their use to prevent injury on <br>lands other than the land to which they are applied, or to persons, animals, crops, or <br>pests or vegetation other than the pests or vegetation which they are intended to <br>destroy. For the purpose of uniformity of requirements between the states and the <br>federal government, the department may adopt the list of &quot;restricted use pesticides&quot; <br>as established by the Environmental Protection Agency or other federal or state <br>agencies.

The administrative regulations may specify <br>licensing conditions, procedures, and fees not to exceed those fees specified for <br>other licensees under this chapter. (5) In addition to the fees authorized in subsection (4) of this section, the department may, by administrative regulation, establish fees for carrying out the provisions <br>required or authorized by this chapter, but shall not establish fees exceeding those <br>specified under this chapter.
