Restricted-Use Pesticides

Keeping Track of What You Spray


Pesticide Classifications

  • General Used Pesticides… 2,4-D, Banvel, Sevin, Zinc Phosphide (<10% a.i.- For domestic use.

  • Restricted-Use Pesticides (RUP)…Tordon, paraquat, Furadan


Restricted Use Pesticides (RUPs)

  • Can only be applied by certified applicators.

  • Can cause harm to the environment

  • Can cause harm to humans or animals


As a certified private pesticide applicator, you are responsible for keeping records for all RUP applications that you make.

  • You must record the application information within 14 days of the application and…..

  • You must keep these records for 2 years following the application.


What information must I record?

  • There is no standard form

  • But there is a standard format


Recordkeeping format

  • Name of applicator and applicator ID number

  • Date when application was made

  • Location

  • Size of the area treated

  • Crop or site sprayed

  • Amount of RUP used

  • Product or trade name of pesticide used

  • EPA Registration Number


Name of applicator and applicator ID number

This Number

Not This one!!!


Date when application was made

  • Month/ Day and year

  • Time is not required but may be useful


Location

  • Actual location of the spraying & not the farm address!!

  • Any method can be used

    • USDA Maps

    • Latitude/Longitude

    • Applicator maps


Location

Goal: To identify a site that you sprayed for at lease 2 years following the application.


User derived location


Size of the area treated

  • Use simple calibration formula (Must know GPA)

  • Volume used ÷ GPA = acres treated

400 gallons used = 20 acres

20 GPA

2 gallons used = 0.025 acres

80 GPA


Crop or site sprayed

  • Language of the label

  • Rangeland, wheat, barley, fenceline, etc


Amount of RUP used

  • Calibration formula and acres treated

  • Acres treated x rate used

  • 20 acres x 1 pint per acre = 20 pints used

  • 0.025 acres x 16 oz. = 0.4 oz. used


Product or trade name of pesticide used

  • Tordon 22K is the trade or brand name

  • Picloram is the common name


EPA Registration Number


Recording a Spot Treatment

  • “Spot application" is an application(s) of a restricted use pesticide made on the same day to a sprayed area of less than 1/10 acre. (4,356 ft2 or 66 x 66 ft.)

  • Let your calibration help you.

    • Your backpack is calibrated to 50 GPA

    • With 5 gallons you should spray 1/10 acre

      (5 gallons ÷ 50 GPA = 0.1 or 1/10 of an acre


Spot Treatments

Field 6 as designated on a farm map.

Spot Treatments

Suppose you sprayed a full 5 gallons in Field #6

You don’t need to record a location every time you pull the trigger!

“Spot Applications for noxious weeds throughout field 6.”


Spot Treatments

  • Location must be designated as "spot application," followed by a concise description of the location

  • Examples:

    • Spot application, leafy spurge in fields number 5 and 6.

    • Spot sprayed for weeds next to equipment shed

    • Spot sprayed for weeds along fenceline by county road.
