2,4-D - INDUSTRY TASK FORCE II ON 2,4-D RESEARCH DATA -
2,4-D, a member of the phenoxy family of herbicides, was the first
selective herbicide developed. After 50 years of use, 2,4-D is still
the third most widely used herbicide in the United States and Canada,
and the most widely used worldwide.

EPA Fact Sheet on New Active Ingredients
Biopesticides Active Ingredient Fact Sheets - EPA.
- EPA Pesticide Fact Sheets
- From EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP). Fact sheets contain
information on specific chemicals and items involving pesticides. You
can perform a search for a fact sheet on a specific topic OR you can
browse through all the fact sheets.
- NPIC Pesticide Fact Sheets -
National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC) fact sheets are designed
to answer questions that are commonly asked by the general public about
pesticides and pesticide related subjects. These documents are intended
to be educational in nature and helpful to consumers making decisions
about pesticide use.
- NCAP Pesticide Fact Sheets - Northwest Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides (NCAP). Have some pesticide fact sheets in PDF format. Other
fact sheets are available to purchase. Have a book for sale that includes
all of their pesticide fact sheets. Their fact sheets are actually multipage
articles (e.g. the one on permethrin is 7 pages) in the Journal of Pesticide Reform. This very green site has other information on, especially, alternatives to pesticides.
- Pesticide Information Profiles
- EXTOXNET Pesticide Information Profiles (PIPs). These are documents -
there are several hundred of them from Abamectin to Ziram - which
provide specific pesticide information relating to health and
environmental effects. PIPs are not based on an exhaustive literature
search. The information does not in any way replace or supersede the
information on the pesticide product labeling or other regulatory
requirements. (EXTOXNET is the Extension Toxicology Network and is a
cooperative effort of University of California-Davis, Oregon State
University, Michigan State University, Cornell University, and the
University of Idaho. Primary files are maintained and archived at
Oregon State University.)
- Right-to-Know Fact Sheets
- New Jersey Dept. of Health and Senior Services, Division of
Environmental and Occupational Health, Right-to-Know Program.
Right-to-Know Fact Sheets. Fact sheets for hundreds of chemicals,
including many pesticides. These Right-to-Know Hazardous Substance Fact
Sheets are available in PDF format. Additional
Fact Sheets will be converted to PDF format and posted to this web page.
The file size for each document is approximately 38 KB. The Fact Sheets are
not intended to be copied and sold for commercial purposes. A description

- Spectrum Laboratories Chemical Fact Sheets
- Hundreds of chemicals are listed, including pesticides. These fact
sheets are provided in an Alphabetical listing, or listed by CAS (Chemical Abstract Number) Number.

- EPA EMCI Chemical References Index -
Searches the EMCI Chemical References Web Pages (searches only Chemical
References HTML pages) at EPA (Chemicals that are monitored by EPA's
Major Program Systems: Air (AFS), Water (PCS), Hazardous Waste (RCRIS),
Superfund (CERCLIS) and Toxics Release Inventory (TRIS)).
"Environmental chemicals" includes some pesticides. Knowing the
chemical name is REALLY helpful.
- EPA-Pesticide Registration Status-REDs -
EPA Office of Pesticide Programs Pesticide Reregistration Eligibility Decisions
(REDs). This page has R.E.D. FACTS and the RED for dozens of individual pesticide
active ingredients. RED documents contain the results of EPA's regulatory
reviews of pesticides initially registered before November 1, 1984. Under
pesticide law FIFRA, EPA must review the human health and environmental effects
of these older pesticide active ingredients and determine whether they are
eligible for reregistration. To be "eligible", a pesticide must be found
not to cause unreasonable risks to people or the environment when used in
with its approved labeling. All registered pesticides also must meet the
safety standard of the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA), which became effective
on August 3, 1996. The R.E.D FACTS are available as separates, but are also
included as the first item in the full RED. The REDs are long; e.g. the RED
for Bacillus thuringiensis is 177 pages. R.E.D. FACTS are shorter; The R.E.D. FACT for Bt is 6 pages long. All files in this section are in PDF format.
