The Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach Pesticide and Field Records app is now available to Android operating system phone and tablet users. The app, previously only available for iPads, was developed to help producers and agriculture businesses record and maintain pesticide application information. The free 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 and Outreach 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. The app can be downloaded from Google Play for android operating systems and from iTunes for iPads.
