The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Sept. 22 settlements with an Arizona fertilizer and crop protection retailer and its affiliate company in California.

The companies will pay more than $130,000 in fines for improper distribution and use of pesticides.

The EPA fined Fertizona and Compton Ag Services for violations of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, a law that regulates pesticide sales and use in the United States.
