  • Can cause harm to the environment

  • Can cause harm to humans or animals


Restricted use pesticides

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

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


What information must i record

What information must I record?

  • There is no standard form

  • But there is a standard format


Recordkeeping 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

Name of applicator and applicator ID number

This Number

Not This one!!!


Date when application was made

Date when application was made

  • Month/ Day and year

  • Time is not required but may be useful


Location

Location

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

  • Any method can be used

    • USDA Maps

    • Latitude/Longitude

    • Applicator maps


Location1

Location

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


User derived location

User derived location


Size of the area treated

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

Crop or site sprayed

  • Language of the label

  • Rangeland, wheat, barley, fenceline, etc


Amount of rup used

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

Product or trade name of pesticide used

  • Tordon 22K is the trade or brand name

  • Picloram is the common name


Epa registration number

EPA Registration Number


Recording a spot treatment

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

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 treatments1

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.
