Back to PUR 2017 Summary Data


The reported cumulative acres treated with pesticides that are listed by U.S. EPA as A or B carcinogens or on the State’s Proposition 65 list of chemicals that are “known to cause cancer”. Use includes primarily agricultural applications. The grand total for acres treated may be less than the sum of acres treated for all active ingredients because some products contain more than one active ingredient. Text files of data are available. Number of Applications and Acres values are for production agricultural pesticide use only.
