Ever wonder what all the information means on a pesticide label? What is an establishment number or signal words? Why do you need to understand the toxicity level? All this information is important as you determine which pesticide is needed for your application. Join EPA staff and learn more about the Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, the rule governing how EPA regulates pesticides, including pesticide product labels. Labels contain information on the EPA registration number, establishment numbers, toxicity categories, signal words, modes of action, target pests, application directions, as well as storage and disposal. This event is a re-broadcast of our highly successful 2021 webinar that provided insight into how to read and interpret the information provided on pesticide labels and the meaning behind each. Following the presentation will be a live question and answer session where you can connect with EPA staff in the Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division, Registration Division and Antimicrobials Division.
This webinar will provide the attendees an opportunity to obtain continuing education credits from the following state agencies and organizations: (Credits are Pending Approval from each state agency)
