USDA Pesticide Record-Keeping Requirements for Certified Private Applicators of Federally Restricted-Use Pesticides

Brad Fresenburg
Coordinator of Pesticide Programs
Melissa May
Missouri Department of Agriculture

The 1990 farm bill requires private certified pesticide applicators to keep records of all applications of federally restricted-use pesticides (RUP). The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) administers the Federal Pesticide Recordkeeping Program.

Although applicators have 14 days to record information about an RUP application, it is best do so immediately after each application to ensure accurate and detailed records. These records must be maintained for two years.

There is no required federal form on which to maintain your records; however, MU Extension publication MP693, Restricted-Use Pesticide Record-Keeping Form, can be downloaded, reproduced and used to be in compliance with the regulation.

What the records must contain

How to record spot treatments

Spot treatments are especially useful in the control of noxious weeds. If you apply restricted-use pesticides on the same day in a total area of less than a tenth of an acre, you are required to record all of the following information:

Greenhouse and nursery treatments do not qualify as spot treatments.

Access to the record information

Only the following people have the right to access your restricted-use pesticide records:

Commercial applicator requirements

All commercial applicators will continue to maintain the records they currently keep under Missouri or federal regulations. The new federal pesticide record-keeping regulations require all commercial applicators, both agricultural and nonagricultural, to furnish a copy of the application record to the customer within 30 days of the restricted-use pesticide application.

Civil penalties

The AMS administrator of USDA is responsible for the enforcement actions taken against violators of this standard.

Any private applicator who violates any provision of the regulations will be subject to the following civil penalties:

Benefits of pesticide record keeping

Maintenance of pesticide application records helps farmers to:

Also, USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) conducts surveys on pesticide use for agricultural production. The information gathered from these surveys is used to maintain a database on the use of pesticides by agriculture. Various public and private organizations use the data when making decisions about or studying such issues as the safety of the nation's food supply, the quality of our water, and the impact of IPM.

Record-keeping information for the EPA Worker Protection Standard

The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Worker Protection Standard (WPS) is a federal regulation intended to reduce the risk of pesticide poisoning and injury among agricultural workers. Private applicators hiring pesticide handlers or workers must display application information to all employees in an accessible area of the workplace before a pesticide is applied. This display is not limited to restricted-use pesticides, but is required when the label of any pesticide being used ­has an Agricultural Use Requirements section.

Additional record-keeping information is also required to meet federal WPS regulations:

The previously mentioned MU Extension record-keeping form, MP693, provides space to record the necessary information for both RUP and WPS records.

Restricted-use pesticides registered in Missouri

The brand or product name and EPA registration number for most restricted-use agricultural pesticides registered in Missouri are listed in the following table. If you use a restricted-use pesticide that is not listed, add the brand or product name and registration number to the table. This information is obtained from the pesticide label.

This list of products was accurate as of the date of publication of this guide. For an updated list of registered RUPs, contact the Missouri Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Pesticide Control at 573-751-5504.
