The list of federally registered restricted use pesticides published herein is intended solely to assist applicators, educators and consumers in recognizing products which may be classified for such use. The "Restricted Use" classification restricts a product, or its uses, to use by a certified and/or licensed pesticide applicator or under the direct supervision of such applicator. (For detailed information on the "Restricted Use" Classification, consult 40 CFR Subpart I, 152.160).

This list is based on the Restricted Use Products (RUP) Report database as maintained by the Office of Pesticide Programs, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (see This list follows the EPA report format and lists the active ingredients as cross-referenced with the restricted use pesticides/product trade names. The official list of Restricted Use pesticides is subject to periodic change.

The active ingredient, isoxaflutole (Balance and Epic herbicides), holds a conditional registration and is not included by the EPA in its federally registered restricted use pesticides list. For a current list of federally restricted use pesticides, contact the nearest EPA office. In addition, individual state lead agencies must register these products before sale and use in their respective states.

Additional pesticide-related information is available from the Clemson University Pesticide Information Program and also from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Pesticide Education Resources.
