Private applicators are required to keep records of their restricted use pesticide (RUP) applications. The classification of several commonly used herbicides to restricted use means more private applicators are in need of an improved mechanism to keep these records. The Kansas State Pesticide Safety program is trying to collect some data on what producers are wanting/needing to be able to keep more accurate, efficient records. The program has developed a short survey consisting of 7 questions and wants to obtain feedback from across the state. The purpose of this survey is to gather your perceptions related to the use of pesticide recordkeeping books/apps and what you would most likely use. The information you provide will aid us in determining the need for and content of a newly developed pesticide recordkeeping book to assist in tracking pesticide application/use.
