Cotton Pesticide use Data based on Arizona's ADA 1080 Forms for 2002

Louis Carlo and Paul Baker


In Arizona, environmental and public health policies protecting Arizona’s groundwater have generated statewide pesticide use reporting systems, thus offering opportunities for pesticide use research. The goal of this paper is to assist cotton growers and pest control applicators by providing meaningful pesticide use information. To do so out of the expanse of pesticide data that is generated, we have isolated the main pesticide products used in Arizona for the production of cotton, those being: Defoliants - Sodium Chlorate; Fungicides - Aflatoxin; and Insecticides - Acephate. In keeping with the purposes of this paper, we identify these pesticides and discuss their five-year trends with respect to regional pest control management.
