    California will be the first state in the nation to develop a system of this scale to provide the public more transparent and equitable access to information in advance of pesticide applications. DPR began developing the statewide notification system in mid-2021, after the state budgeted $10 million to DPR for system development. The department partnered with four County Agricultural Commissioners to conduct pilot projects in communities within Riverside, Santa CruzStanislaus and Ventura counties to inform the continued development of the statewide system.

    For more information and updates on statewide notification and county-led pilot projects, please visit DPR’s website.

    ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF PESTICIDE REGULATION

    The California Department of Pesticide Regulation protects human health and the environment by fostering safer and sustainable pest management practices, and by operating a robust regulatory system. That system evaluates and registers pesticides and monitors and regulates their sale and use in California.

    DPR’s work includes conducting scientific evaluations of pesticides to assess and mitigate potential harm to human health and the environment. These evaluations are conducted prior to and following registration. Pesticides must be registered before they can be sold or used in California. DPR also monitors air and water for the presence of pesticides and enforces pesticide laws and regulations in coordination with the 55 County Agricultural Commissioners and their combined 500 field inspectors across the state’s 58 counties. DPR invests in innovative research, outreach, and education to encourage the development and adoption of safer, integrated pest management tools and practices. DPR conducts outreach to ensure pesticide workers, farmworkers and local communities have access to pesticide safety information.
