Duration: 42 minutes

Target audience: Federal and State Agencies, Tribes

NPIC receives over 10,000 inquiries each year, originating from all 50 states and US territories. About 15% of inquiries involve a pesticide exposure, an adverse effect, a misapplication and/or a spill. NPIC collects a wide range of data points about the inquiries received, and make that data available to EPA and affiliated state agencies at no charge. In this webinar, the NPIC Coordinator will preview the types of data collected and their unique strengths compared to other sources of pesticide incident data. Example reports will be presented, as well as feedback from state agencies on how the data were useful.

If you have questions about this, or any pesticide-related topic, please call NPIC at 1-800-858-7378 (8:00am - 12:00pm PST), or email at npic@ace.orst.edu.
