Chemical: Name Search
The features and functions of the Chemical: Name Search page allow you to query pesticide use reports by the chemical active ingredients found in pesticide products. Note that the chemicals in adjuvant products are confidential and will be left blank if chemical data has been requested. Many chemicals are listed under numerous salts and esters. Entering partial names in the search engine may be useful in ensuring that you include all salts and esters of interest. For example, typing the word ‘glyphosate’ in the search engine returns seven chemicals that may be of interest.

Note: In choosing your selection criteria, it is possible to make combinations of selections that result in no data being retrieved from the database. For example, choosing a pesticide product or chemical ingredient that is used for non-agricultural pest control (e.g. a structural fumigant or an institutional disinfectant) would return 0 records if chosen in combination with an agricultural commodity (e.g. apples). A search resulting in 0 records does not mean your query didn't work, it means that there were no data meeting those criteria.
