National Pesticide Information Center [pdf]

‘The National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC) was created through a cooperative agreement between Oregon State University and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Its primary function is to provide “objective, science-based information about pesticides and pesticide-related topics to enable people to make informed decisions about pesticides and their use.” The site contains seven primary sections, including “General Information”, “Technical Information”, “Pest Control”, and “Emergency”. Most casual visitors to the site should click on over to the “General Information” area. In this section, they will find fact sheets and posters on pesticide safety, storage and disposal, and case studies. Of course, they shouldn’t forget about the other areas of the site, particularly if they are interested in regulatory issues involving pesticides and emergency resources. Finally, the site also contains a search engine for those who know exactly what they need to find. [KMG]’
