Restricted-Use Pesticides

Keeping Track of What You Spray

pesticide classifications
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
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
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
date when application was made
Date when application was made
  • Month/ Day and year
  • Time is not required but may be useful
  • Actual location of the spraying & not the farm address!!
  • Any method can be used
    • USDA Maps
    • Latitude/Longitude
    • Applicator maps


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

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
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

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.
