Pesticide Recordkeeping Program (PRP)  
PRP Icon
In accordance with the 1990 Farm Bill, all private applicators are required by law to keep record(s) of their federally restricted use pesticide (RUP) applications for a period of 2 years. PRP operations ended in September 2013 due to the elimination of program funding. If you have questions regarding the program please contact the AMS Public Affairs Office at (202) 720-8998.

No standard Federal form is required for recording RUP applications, which allows certified private applicators the flexibility to integrate RUP applications into any recordkeeping system. The 9 required elements that must be recorded within 14 days of each RUP application are as follows:

The brand or product name
The EPA registration number
The total amount applied
The month, day, and year
The location of the application
The crop, commodity, stored product, or site
The size of area treated
The name of the certified applicator
The certification number of the certified applicator
