In the event of an emergency, as declared by the director, the department may issue permits for the use of use restricted pesticides in variation of any restrictions contained in areas 2B, 4, and 6. An emergency under this section may be declared if the director determines that the risk and amount of economic harm to any agriculture crop substantially outweighs the risk and amount of damage likely to occur if a variance permit is issued.
