To support the pesticides selection in pest management programs

A query:

Suppose a user intends to control ants around his house. Considering safety, the user prefers the pesticide products that have low toxicity to humans and animals because the applied sites are so close to the house-member and domesticated animals. The user may be an environmental conservator and expects the desired pesticide products having low toxicity to birds and other small invertebrates. Additionally, the user may expect the pesticides have a short persistent period in the soil.

research objective
Research Objective

To design a user-oriented pesticide safety consultant system (tool) in guidance of pesticide selection and application in pest management program.

Ultimately, we expect this consultant system would assist to reduce or minimize the use of certain pesticides that commit high hazardous potentials to humans, domestic animals, ecosystems, and the environment.
