Pesticide Use Reporting of Field Fumigant Applications
DPR uses pesticide use reports on field fumigant applications to track emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in five “nonattainment areas” (NAAs, map ) that do not meet air quality standards for pesticide VOCs: San Joaquin Valley NAA, Sacramento Metro NAA, South Coast NAA, Southeast Desert NAA, and Ventura NAA.
As part of their routine pesticide use reporting, applicators must include a four-digit code corresponding to the specific method used in each field fumigation. This reporting requirement is in effect year-round. It is mandatory in all five NAAs, and voluntary in other parts of the state.
