Pesticide Record Keeping Program

The MSU ES Pesticide Record Keeping Workbook allows keeping records of the application of pesticides, both Restricted Use and other types. The workbook contains pesticide data for over 250 pesticides licensed for use in row crop applications in Mississippi. Several reports such as a Re-Entry Report, a Farm/Field Report, or a Crop/Variety Report are available from the workbook. The workbook calculates re-entry dates and times for each application and also figures economic costs if prices are entered.
