KANSAS CITY — A pesticide dealer in southwest Missouri has agreed to pay a fine over alleged violations of federal regulations.

Greenleaf LLC of Neosho will pay $100,000 in civil penalties to settle a series of alleged violations of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act.

Greenleaf neither admits nor denies any of the allegations contained in an administrative consent agreement and final order announced Monday. The order was filed in June by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's regional office in Kansas City.

According to the agreement, the Missouri Department of Agriculture alleges the company violated various aspects of federal pesticide regulations, including distributing or selling about 59 unregistered pesticides that did not meet federal requirements.
