Are Your Pesticide Records Up-to-Date?

Posted: May 13, 2014

The job is not done until the paperwork is complete!

Did you know you have 24 hours to record your restricted use pesticide applications and need to maintain those records for three years?

It’s planting time again and that goes together with spraying time. As a private applicator you have some pesticide recordkeeping requirements to keep up with along with everything else occurring at this time of year. You may have picked up a record keeping book at a pesticide meeting this year or a few years ago. Now is a good time to dig down a few layers on the desk and put that book to good use. If you don’t have a recordkeeping book don’t panic, individual sheets are available on-line.

Did you notice I said restricted use pesticide applications, general use pesticides are not required to be recorded by a private applicator, but certainly it is a good management practice to write all pesticide applications for future reference.
