Pesticide Information Resources
The following are resources that are useful in searching pesticide information for presentations to groups on pesticide products, pest management, and safety related areas. These are also useful resources in making pest control recommendations.
The Pest Management Information Program is part of the Southern IPM
Center. This program is part of a national effort to protect producers of specialty crops at risk from regulation and limitations of integrated pest management tools. IPM Documents published by the
project support this effort. We also list various resources that could help agents develop
presentations and assist with programs in pest management. Consider completing an IPM Priorities Survey to document IPM needs in your locality. The survey link is available after you log into trainer tools on this website.
The Virginia Pest Management Guides are a necessity in making
pest control recommendations for the public. All VCE recommendations
should come from these guides. Recommendations that go beyond the PMG
must be cleared first with the appropriate pest management specialist
(listed under the specific crop/use areas in the PMG's).

The Virginia Pesticide Product Registration Database provided by
Purdue University integrates Virginia's data on currently registered
pesticide products with EPA pesticide registration information
concerning ingredients, sites and target pests. This website starts out
with all registered products and allows you to narrow your search with
a series of searches depending on your criteria. It can be used to
assist in making recommendations (again, based on the PMG) and as a
resource for program development.

The Pesticide Database Searches provided by Kelly Registration
Systems integrates Virginia's data on currently registered pesticide
products with EPA pesticide registration information concerning
ingredients, sites and target pests. This website allows single
criteria or multiple criteria searches.
