  1. Restricted-Use Pesticides Keeping Track of What You Spray

  2. 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

  3. Restricted Use Pesticides (RUPs) • Can only be applied by certified applicators. • Can cause harm to the environment • Can cause harm to humans or animals

  4. 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.

  5. What information must I record? • There is no standard form • But there is a standard format

  6. 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

  7. Name of applicator and applicator ID number This Number Not This one!!!

  8. Date when application was made • Month/ Day and year • Time is not required but may be useful

  9. Location • Actual location of the spraying & not the farm address!! • Any method can be used • USDA Maps • Latitude/Longitude • Applicator maps

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

  11. User derived location

  12. 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

  13. Crop or site sprayed • Language of the label • Rangeland, wheat, barley, fenceline, etc

  14. 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

  15. Product or trade name of pesticide used • Tordon 22K is the trade or brand name • Picloram is the common name

  16. EPA Registration Number

  17. 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

  18. 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.”

  19. 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.
