private applicators, pesticide record keeping, restricted-use
A section of the Food, Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade (FACT) Act of 1990, also known as the 1990 Farm Bill, requires private pesticide applicators to keep records of restricted-use pesticide (RUP) applications. These regulations originally went into effect in May 1993 and were revised in May 1995. The intent of these record-keeping requirements is to estimate the use of RUPs and to provide emergency medical information for the treatment of exposure to these pesticides. The program is administered by the Ag Marketing Service of USDA.
