The California Department of Pesticide Regulation maintains the the world's most comprehensive system for tracking agricultural pesticide use. The data collected are publicly available as downloadable datasets.

To help users to more easily access these data, the California Environmental Health Tracking Program built the Agricultural Pesticide Mapping Tool. The tool visualizes agricultural pesticide use in California on an interactive map and includes several features that allow users to explore the data in-depth. See the tool.

The latest version of this tool was recently released with 2015 data and the following new features:

  1. Spanish language option.
  2. View top ten pesticides for an area.

This webinar will describe California's pesticide use reporting data and provide instructions and a demonstration on how to use the tool, with a special focus on new features. Join us and learn about the pesticide mapping tool functions and how to use them to answer specific questions about agricultural pesticide use in California and in your community. We also provide training in Spanish by request.
