Navigating the Pesticide Use Reporting (PUR) Data Source

This application employs a top-down, general-to-specific approach. Our goal is to help you request and obtain pesticide use data by selecting various criteria within data categories, submitting your query, and getting a return data set in a table format.

Once you have chosen the PUR Data Source, as you move through the CalPIP pages, the left navigation column will include the same active links to each pesticide data category offered. Build your query by selecting from the available data categories. You may select from the data categories in any order with the following exception: you must first select County and/or Zip Code before selecting an MTRS (median/township/range/section). In the course of your selections, if you do not select a year, all other selection criteria will be based on the most recent data year available. At anytime you may review your selections on the My Selections page.

CalPIP also provides you with many ways to format your tabular results. On the Format Output page you may obtain raw data or you may select summarized data grouped by category. When you are satisfied with your data selections and formatting, click on Submit Query to send your query to the data warehouse and obtain a return data set.

If you need a large amount of PUR data, visit DPR’s Pesticide Use Reporting page to download summary reports. To obtain a CD ROM of the complete PUR database, order the Annual Pesticide Use Report CD-ROM on DPR’s Publications Order Form. (PDF, 171 kb) If you need only a portion of the data available, you should narrow your search by selecting a smaller number of criteria within each of the active data categories.


Navigating the Ground Water Protection Area (GWPA) Data Source

To search for ground water protection areas (GWPAs):

1: Pick the GWPA Data Source from the pull down menu at the top of the left navigation column.

2: Choosing the GWPA data source will automatically bring up Step 1, the Select County page.

To begin your GWPA search, click on a county name (to select multiple counties, hold down the Shift or Ctrl key). Click Select. Once you see the county or counties you have selected appear in the Counties Selected box, click Next to go to the Select Township-Range-Section page. See Step 2.

Note: Advanced users can choose to enter a County/Meridian/Township/Range/Section (COMTRS) location directly in the COMTRS input field at the bottom of the Select County page, and then click the Search GWPA button to see immediately whether the section entered is a GWPA.

3: You can select specific COMTRS locations on the Select Township-Range-Section page. The MTRS link in the left navigation column will also take you to this page.

Note: You must select a county and/or zip code before you can open the Select Township-Range-Section page. When specific COMTRS are selected, the GWPA search will be performed on all the sections selected. If specific township/range blocks are selected but no COMTRS are selected, the GWPA search will be performed on all the COMTRS under the selected townships. If no specific township/range blocks are selected and only a county or counties are selected, the GWPA search will be performed on all the COMTRS within the selected counties. The GWPA result will list all the COMTRS searched and identify those that are designated as GWPAs.

First choose from the box containing "Available COMTR Township and Range under selected county(s)." This box is located to the left of the gray vertical dashed line. Once you have selected a COMTR, the "Available COMTRS Sections within selected Township-Range" appear in the upper box to the right of the gray vertical dashed line. From this box you can select one or more individual sections. When you have selected a specific section that you are interested in, click the Submit button to bring up the GWPA Search Result page to see the GWPA found in the location(s) that you have selected.

To start a new search, click on the Return to Step 1 link at the bottom of the GWPA Search Result page, or click the Start Over button at any time.


Navigating Pesticide Regulation’s Endangered Species Custom Realtime Internet Bulletin Engine (PRESCRIBE) Data Source

To search for use limitations on pesticides that may harm species listed as endangered or threatened by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, or harm habitat critical to those species’ survival:

First: Pick the PRESCRIBE Data Source from the pull down menu at the top of the left navigation column.

Step 1: Choosing the PRESCRIBE data source will automatically bring up Step 1, the Select County page.

To begin your PRESCRIBE search, click on a county name (to select multiple counties, hold down the Shift or Ctrl key). Click Select. Once you see the county or counties you have selected appear in the Counties Selected box, click Next to go to the Select Township-Range-Section page. See Step 2. At anytime you may review your selections on the My Selections page.

Step 2: You can select specific COMTRS locations on the Select Township-Range-Section page. The MTRS link in the left navigation column will also take you to this page.

Note: You must select a county and/or zip code before you can open the Select Township-Range-Section page.

First choose from the box containing "Available COMTR Township and Range under selected county(s)." This box is located to the left of the gray vertical dashed line. Once you have selected a COMTR, the "Available COMTRS Sections within selected Township-Range" appear in the upper box to the right of the gray vertical dashed line. From this box you can select one or more individual sections. When specific COMTRS are selected, the PRESCRIBE search will be performed on all the sections selected. If specific township/range blocks are selected but no COMTRS are selected, the PRESCRIBE search will be performed on all the COMTRS under the selected townships. If no specific township/range blocks are selected and only a county or counties are selected, the PRESCRIBE search will be performed on all the COMTRS within the selected counties.

Once you have made your selection, clicking the Next button will bring up a list of protected species located in the selected section(s).

Step 3: You can view information on endangered, threatened, proposed endangered, proposed threatened and rare species within your selected location.

If your search has returned a list of species on the Species Located page, you can click on a species name to go to a Species Detail page containing information about that species, including a description, habitat information and photo, if available. If you decide to go to one of the Species Detail pages, you will need to click on your browser’s Back button to return to the Species Located page. Clicking the Next button at the bottom of the Species Located page will take you to the Select Product /Labels page to identify the product(s) you intend to use. The Product: Name Search link in the left navigation column will also take you to this page.

Step 4: Identify the products that you intend to use by entering the product name or keyword into the Search Box.

The Product Search function accepts partial and whole words. When you hit the Search button, you will see a list of search results in the Available Products box. You may also click on a letter of the alphabet to display Available Product labels by letter. Product names starting with the letter "A" are displayed by default. When the products appear in the Available Product box, click on the names of the product(s) you intend to apply and click Select to select the product(s).

Use the Unselect button to remove individual products from the Selected Products list. Use the Clear Selection button to clear your search request and return to the full list of products.

To continue, click Next or Submit to see any use limits on the product(s) you’ve chosen relevant to protected species identified in your locations.

Step 5: View the use limit codes for your selected products.

View the pesticide use limitations, if any, for the products that you have selected, applicable to any species identified in your locations. Scrolling down the page, you will see the list of protected species, a list of your location selections, and a list of your selected products. If there are use limits on your selected product(s), a numerical code will appear in the Use Limits column to the left of the product name. Scroll down to view the code definitions. Following these use limitations will protect endangered and threatened species from harm due to pesticide use.
