Effective Regulatory Compliance:Landspreading Consultation

Is Landspreading the Best Remediation Technique for Your Property?

In order to meet both state and federal regulatory compliance laws, environmental professionals need to have extensive knowledge of the chemicals and know which remediation techniques are appropriate to use for each spilled chemical. For example, when agricultural pesticides and fertilizers exceed allowable limits in soil, the most effective method may be to spread the soil onto crops in a thin layer – also known as land spreading.

At Hyde Environmental, our knowledgeable environmental consultants assess your property to determine which remediation technique is best suited for your land. You can schedule a basic Phase I ESA or request a more comprehensive assessment by including any of our additional consulting services:

Chemical Spill Cleanup Help

If your property has a severe fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide or insecticide spill, landspreading may be the best solution available. Effective landspreading requires experience and knowledge of each chemical compound's normal agronomic application rate, taking into account local soil conditions and seasonal factors. Hyde Environmental has overseen and implemented landspreading procedures of contaminated soil for more than 50 locations throughout the Midwest. In other words, we have the environmental consultation experience you need when facing an emergency!

Agricultural Chemicals Used in Wisconsin: Clean Up Your Spill with Hyde Environmental

Hyde Environmental specializes in the assessment and diagnosis of pesticide and fertilizer spills in Wisconsin and across the Midwestern states of the US. With corn and potatoes being two huge crops grown in the state, there is a slew of chemicals Wisconsin is no stranger to. Designed to keep insects and pests at bay, agricultural chemicals are an essential aspect of any manufacturer, farmer, or industrial facility's success. If your property has a spill, Hyde Environmental is prepared to face any number of potential herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, or insecticides, including: 

Wisconsin Agricultural Fertilizers, Herbicides, Insecticides & Pesticides 




















Copper Hydroxide




Mandipropamide Technical



Propamocarb Hydroch


Tirphenylitin Hydrox













Diquat Dibromide

Maleic Hydrazide

Unlike other industrial chemicals, these compounds are intended to be applied to agricultural fields. Even if you own a residential property, it's important you have a Phase I or Phase II ESA performed on your land before selling it to eliminate your liability for any chemicals potentially present. It isn't uncommon for fertilizers and pesticides to travel miles when rain pushes chemicals into makeshift streams. Don't risk future costs when your buyer's environmental site assessment reveals herbicides or insecticides on their property from a manufacturer up the street - stay ahead and contact Hyde Environmental today.

Wisconsin Cost Reimbursement ClaimsCost Reimbursement Claims: Programs in Wisconsin, Kansas & Minnesota

Programs that reimburse companies for most costs resulting from cleaning up the accidental release of pesticides and fertilizer compounds are known as cost reimbursement claims. These programs target agricultural and chemical wholesale and retail facilities which had inadvertent releases during normal operations. Three states in the Midwest have such programs, including: 

  • Wisconsin

  • Minnesota

  • Kansas

Each state program is different from the others. For example:


The program requires bids and detailed cost analysis and estimates before any work begins.


The program requires prior approval of the technical approach, but no bids or cost estimates are required.

In order to receive compensation, all programs require the applicant to submit a detailed claim that documents the eligibility for each cost. It is important to work with an Environmental Consultant who has extensive experience and knowledge of both state regulatory programs and reimbursement programs. The Hyde Environmental team assists with the navigation of the programs, providing maximum reimbursement.
