New Pesticide Record-Keeping App Now Available

May 9, 2013

By Kristine Schaefer, Department of Entomology

Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach worked with iOS app developer Rade | Eccles to develop the Pesticide and Field Records iPad app to help producers and agriculture businesses record and maintain pesticide application information. The free iPad app allows users to link information to specific field locations using satellite mapping and document pesticide application information needed to comply with state and federal record-keeping requirements.  The app also features a product search option that lists Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) product registration numbers and identifies restricted use products.

Development of the app was funded by the ISU Extension Pest Management and the Environment program and a grant from the EPA under assistance of the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship Pesticide Bureau.
