Active Ingredient Fact Sheets

image of fact sheets

Active Ingredient Fact Sheets summarize the current knowledge for each pesticide ingredient, and are not intended to be an exhaustive review of available scientific information. These fact sheets include information on the chemicals' physical characteristics, mode of action, regulation, health effects, and environmental fate.

Our goal is to present relevant scientific information from credible sources. Most active ingredient fact sheets are available in both General and Technical formats for the public and professionals, respectively.

General Fact Sheets are written in an easy-to-understand question-and-answer format. They are intended for use by the general public or those with limited scientific backgrounds. They contain similar information to the Technical Fact Sheets, but they are written in more general terms.

Technical Fact Sheets are designed to provide detailed information on specific pesticide chemicals. They are intended for use by individuals with a scientific background or familiarity with the regulation of pesticides such as physicians, veterinarians, regulators or research scientists. Technical fact sheets contain information on the pesticide's physical characteristics, mode of action, toxicological information, environmental fate, ecotoxicology and detailed references.

To view some of the fact sheets you will need a PDF viewer like Adobe Reader.
