Pesticide Use Report

Summary The workgroup brings together people who share common interests in pesticide use issues to promote effective communication and interaction among the members. These include faculty, extension specialists, and farm advisors in the UC, and PUR analysts in state agencies and commodity groups. The specific objectives of the PUR workgroup are: 1. Form a network to discuss the PUR in research, government regulations, and the public awareness, and exchange the best way of using the PUR for various purposes. 2. Provide a forum for members to exchange insights and experiences in PUR analysis in their work and research. 3. Discuss specific measures of pesticide use, pounds applied, acres treated, number of applications, weighted index of use, and other potential measures of pesticide use and impacts for various purposes. 4. Discuss ways of disseminating PUR-related information such as a website,encourage members to collaborate and publish PUR analysis and methodology.
