Ozone is formed from the photochemical oxidation of nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as pesticides and fumigants. This is leading to increased regulation of agricultural VOC sources. It has been estimated that 5% of the total VOC in the San Joaquin and Sacramento Valleys are from pesticides. This has led DPR to require reductions in pesticide-related VOC emissions from 1990 levels. Future regulations may require additional reductions to meet 1-hour and 8-hour SIP requirements.
