California is moving towards tighter rules on a pesticide that is popular with farmers.

A draft of the new rules was released recently, and after a public comment period officials could begin to enforce them in September.

California already prohibits farmers from applying the pesticide within 45 metres of a school or home, but officials say that could be increased to 450 feet 135 metres.
