INTRODUCTION

Since  1970 when  the U.  S.  Environmental Protection Agency  (EPA) was given
the responsibility of regulating all aspects of pesticides, the Agency has
amassed, through the registration process, an extensive conputer data system
on most Federally registered pesticide products.  The information includes
product names, manufacturers, active ingredients, tolerances for residues,
and site and pest information for particular products and active ingredients.

The field of pesticide  use and regulation is a dynamic area.  The development
of new pesticides, pest resistance problems, and EPA's restriction of the
use of certain pesticides  require that the pesticide community keep abreast
of which pesticides are available, and which registered pesticide products
contain any  given pesticidal chemical.

The Program  Management  & Support, and Benefits and Use Divisions of the Office
of Pesticide Programs  (OPP)  of EPA, recognizing the need to make this vast
store of information available to interested individuals in the pesticide
community, have  developed  this Pesticide Product Information on Microfiche.
It is a data system designed to assist individuals in answering a wide range
of pesticide-related questions, and to permit the pesticide community to
make use of  most of OPP's  computer-based information.

This manual  provides the basic information and guidance needed to use these
microfiche to your advantage.  Their use can save time and money in answering
most pesticide-related  questions.

Some problems, however, may  be too complex to answer within a reasonable
period of tine using only  the microfiche.  If you run into such a problem,
there are experts available  to help you in the Benefits and Use Division of
the Office of Pesticide Programs.  They may be contacted by phone at (703)
557-3790 or  by mail:

Microfiche  Why?

Microfiche was selected for information dispersal because fiche is compact,
lightweight,  inexpensive and easily updated.  The individual microfiche
are strips of film about the size of a large  index card.  Each microfiche
card contains reduced images of  up to 270 full  size computer pages.

The Pesticide Product Information consists of a stack of these microfiche
"cards," which weighs only a few pounds.   The same microfiche translated into
"hard copy" would produce a stack of full size  computer paper many feet
high.

Suggested Methods for Handling and Storage of Microfiche

For ease of use, microfiche should be stored  in a card file with suitable
index tabs or in one of the commercially available microfiche folders.  The
last pages of this manual supply tabs to aid  in your organized storage.

Each fiche bears a title and number in its upper margin.  Sets containing
large  numbers of fiche (e.g. Pesticide Label  Data, Site/Pest/Chemical/
Registration  number, etc.) also  indicate which  segment of the data is
contained on  each fiche.

Microfiche Readers  Use and Availability

To  use the microfiche,  simply select the  card you need (see Index to Microfiche
Sets) and insert the fiche into  the  reader.  As most readers are somewhat
different,  read the directions supplied with your machine to determine how
to  insert the fiche.

As  noted  earlier,  each frame on  the  microfiche  is simply a reduction of a
computer  page.   Each page or frame is  numbered  in the upper right hand corner
of  the frame  and all frames on all fiche are  sequenced identically.  The
first  frame is in the upper left hand corner  and the frames run sequentially
from top to bottom and left to right.   After  locating the correct frame and
taking all necessary notations,  remove the fiche and return it to its proper
place.

A wide variety of microfiche readers is available.  Readers vary from pocket
types  to  large desk models with  variable magnification.  Microfiche reader-
printers  which will provide a printed page or "hard copy" of the data are
also available.

Most libraries have microfiche readers or reader-printers available for
public use.   If you are interested in purchasing a reader, consult the yellow
pages  of  your local telephone directory under "Microfilming Services, Equipment
and Supplies."
                                     -3-

-------
Accuracy and Completeness of Information

The Pesticide Product  Information on microfiche does not constitute a legal
document.  The data  in these microfiche should not be used as the final word
when determining  if  a  particular chemical is registered for a particular
use.  This information should  be for reference purposes only.  Any and all
data should be verified with the source document  (e.g. the registered label,
etc.) before any  substantive action is taken.

Updates and Related  Fiche Sets

The Pesticide Product  Information on microfiche has been updated annually in
April.  This is the  last year  EPA will generate these microfiche.

A microfilmed set of all EPA-accepted pesticide labels is also being maintained.
It is available on microfiche  from the National Technical Information Service,
Springfield, Virginia, 22161.   It is used as a companion document to the
Pesticide Product Information. This Compact Label File is scheduled for
update on an annual  basis.

PESTICIDE PRODUCT INFORMATION

The following pages  give  a description of the  information contained in each
of these microfiche  sets.   Included  is the manner in which the set is organized
and what is to be found on a representative frame within the set.

Once  you are  familiar with the information contained in the  system, you^will
see how the information from various sets can be combined  to answer various
pesticide-related questions.

 Product Manager Assignment
 Arranged by:  EPA Registration Number

 The Product Manager (PM) is the individual within the Registration Division
 of OPP who is responsible for registering pesticide products on a day-to-day
 basis.  If specific questions arise concerning a particular pesticide product,
 the Product Manager for that product should be contacted.

 The Product Manager for a particular product is identified  in  the PM Assignment
 microfiche.  The fiche set is arranged by registration number.  First find
 the registration number of the product then note the  appropriate PM number.

 The Product Manager can be contacted via  the telephone numbers in the following
 list or by mail:

Pesticide Products  (NUMERICAL)
Arranged by:  EPA Registration  Number

This set lists the  product name, status code and the registration date of
each pesticide product by its registration  number.

Products currently  registered in individual states are included and can be
identified  by the two-letter state  designation to the left of the status
code.  State-registered products can  be used only in that state until such
time that they become  registered by the EPA.
                                     -7-

This set lists the same data as Pesticide Products (Numerical), but in
alphabetical order by product name.  If the product name is known, this
fiche set will indicate the EPA Registration Number.

Pesticide Companies  (NUMERICAL)

Chemical Cross Reference File  (ALPHABETICAL AND NUMERICAL LISTINGS)
Arranged by:  Chemical Name and Chemical Code

Much of OPP's pesticide data is arranged by active chemical ingredient (e.g.
the Chemical/Site Name/Pest Name/Registration Number and Chemical/Registration
Number microfiche sets discussed below).  Since many chemical names are too
long to be handled easily, EPA has assigned a chemical code number to all active
ingredients.  Much of the data in these sets is arranged by chemical code
and not by chemical name.  In  order to obtain data from the microfiche files
entitled Chemical/Site Name/Pest Name/Registration Number or Chemical/ Registration
Number, the user nust first locate the EPA chemical code for the chemical in
question.

The Chemical Cross Reference File (alphabetical) indicates the appropriate
chemical code for each chemical.  The numerical listing groups accepted
chemical names, trade names, common names and synonyms for each chemical by
chemical code.  If the user knows the chemical code, he can learn other
synonyms for the chemical in question.

no designation - EPA Accepted  Chemical Name
C              - Common Name
S              - Synonym
T              - Trade name

Tolerance File By Chemical
Arranged by:  Chemical Name

This set lists for each chemical name and agricultural commodity, the
established tolerances expressed as PPM (parts per million), and the section
number in the Code of Federal  Regulations where additional information may
be found.

Tolerance File By Cotmodity
Arranged by:  Commodity Name

This set lists the same data as does the Tolerance File by Chemical, but is
listed by agricultural commodity and chemical name.

Chemical/Registration Number File
Arranged by:  Chemical Code

This set lists all registered  pesticide products (by registration number)
which contain a particular chemical (by chemical code).  Note:  This does
not mean that the particular pesticide product found contains only one ingredient.
To determine if the particular registration number in question is a mixture,
consult the Pesticide Label Data fiche set (discussed below).

 Pesticide Label Data
 Arranged by:   Registration Number

 This set lists, for each registration number, the product name, pesticide
 type (e.g. insecticide and miticide), chemical active ingredients, percent
 concentration of each ingredient, the status  (see description under Pesticide
 Products (Numerical), the Product Manager, the latest date that the label
 was accepted, and the toxicity code.

 Toxicity Codes

 1 - Danger
 2 - Warning
 3 - Caution
 SETT B
 Site and Pest Data on Microfiche

 Nine microfiche subsets are provided which contain site/pest vocabulary and
 use  pattern information.  They are:

     EPA Site Categories;
     Site Names-Preferred;
     EPA Pest Vocabularies;
     24(c) Site Tables;
     Pest Table;
     Pest Name/Chemical/Registration  Number;
     Site Name/Chemical/Registration  Number;
     Site Name/Pest Name/Chemical/Registration Number;
     Chemical/Site Name/Pest Name/Registration Number;

 The  data in the Pest Name/Chemical/Registration Number, Site Name/Chemical/
 Registration Number,  Site  Name/Pest  Name/Chemical/Registration Number, and
 Chemical/Site Name/Pest Name/Registration  Number microfiche sets were
 processed using a set of special computer  programs.  More than half of
 all  registered pesticide products contain  a mixture of two or more active
 chemical  ingredients.  Without  scientific  knowledge of the effects of each
 chemical  it is frequently  impossible to tell which chemical in a mixture is
 actually  the  controlling factor for  the pest identified on the label, or if
 two  or more of the active  ingredients work together to control the pest.
To avoid misleading listings of  sites and pests for individual chemicals,
pesticide  chemical mixtures have their registration numbers flagged with
an asterisk.   No  attempt has been made, however, to indicate which chemical
or chemicals  of a pesticide mixture  is the controlling factor for the pest
identified on  the  label.
                                     -10-

-------
EPA Site Categories
Includes:   Introduction, Table of Contents, Site Categories and Site Qualifiers;
            Alphabetized Agricultural Crops; Alphabetized Ornamental Plants
            and Forest Trees  by caramon and scientific names.

The Site Categories vocabulary organizes the sites of pesticide application
(e.g. beans,  domestic dwellings) by code, to enable the interpretation and
coding of sites from  pesticide labeling.  This vocabulary is designed to
reflect site  names organized by groups  (i.e. site categories), documentation
with scientific names and/or descriptive information, and the appropriate
hierarchical  code.  The sites are further modified with coded site qualifiers
(e.g. foliar  application,  indoor use).  An explanation of the coding system
can be found  in its introduction.

Site Names-Preferred
Includes:   Generic site terms organized numerically by code and alphabetically
            by name.

The site names-preferred fiche file provides brief (one to several word)
descriptions  of sites defined by the site categories document.  The site
names-preferred plus  the generic qualifiers (discussed below) compose the
site terms  used in this year's versions of the Site Name/Pest Name/Chemical/
Registration  Number,  Chemical/Site Name/ Pest Name/Registration Number, and
Site Name/Chemical/Registration Number  data sets.

The site terms represent a generic system of site terminology.  They are
being used  again this year to replace the 5- and 7-^digit sites used in the
1981 Site/Pest/Chemical/ Registration Number and Chemical/Site/Pest/Regis-
tration Number microfiche  sets.  The sites will be intermediate in specificity
between the old 5- and 7-digit site terms.  Basically, what has been done is
to group qualifier terms (position 6 and 7 of the site code) into meaningful
generic clusters.  For example, there are 16 qualifier terms describing
treatment to growing  crops in the field.  These have all been condensed to
one generic term,  "crop/site in field".  Table 1 describes how these generic
qualifiers  relate to  the qualifiers from which they were derived.  As
was mentioned earlier, all sites in this year's fiche consist of a
site name-preferred (e.g.  apple) and a  generic qualifier (e.g. crops/site
in field).

EPA Pest Vocabularies
Includes:  Introduction, Code and/or Common Name Sequences, +_ Appendix

The six pest vocabularies include those for aquatic and terrestrial weeds;
antimicrobial pests; insects and other organisms; plant parasitic nematodes;
plant pathogens, economic fungi and related organisms; and vertebrates.
These vocabularies are designed to reflect common names of pests documented
with scientific names and their appropriate hierarchical codes.  Specific
information for each vocabulary is found in its respective introduction.

24(c) Site Tables
Includes:  Site Name Sequence, Site Code Sequence

The site tables reflect the actual coded sites with any descriptors and
qualifiers that have been interpreted from pesticide labeling, using the
Site Categories vocabulary as its basis.  The tables also includes a sequence
code separating synonyms or subsites.

Pest Table
Includes:  Pest Name Sequence, Pest Code Sequence

The pest table reflects the actual coded pests that have been interpreted
from pesticide labeling using the pest vocabularies as its basis.  The table
also includes a sequence code separating synonyms.

Pest Name/Chemical/Registration Number
Arranged by:  Pest Name - Chemical Code - Registration Number

This set is arranged by pest name.  Under each pest appear the pesticide
chemicals, in code order, registered to control the pest in question.  Under
each chemical appear the registration numbers of pesticide products containing
the above pest/chemical combination.  Registration numbers corresponding to
products containing more than one active ingredient are preceded by an asterisk.
Unasterisked registration numbers represent products that contain only the
subject chemical.

Care should be exercised when interpreting information from this data set.
Pest/chemical combinations containing only asterisked registration numbers
should be viewed with skepticism.  In the case where all registration numbers
are asterisked, it is possible that the chemical in question is not efficacious
for a given pest; another of the chemicals in the formulation may, in fact,
be providing the control.

-------
Site Name/Chemical/Registration Number
Arranged by:  Type of Pesticide - Site Name - Chemical Code - Registration
              Number

This set is arranged by site name.  Under each site appears the pesticide
chemicals, in code order, registered for use on the site in question.  Under
each chemical appears the registration numbers of pesticide products containing
the above site/chemical combination.  Registration numbers corresponding to
products containing more than one active ingredient are preceded by an asterisk.
Unasterisked registration numbers represent products that contain only the
subject chemical.

Care should be exercised when interpreting information from this data set.
Site/chemical combinations containing only asterisked registration numbers
should be viewed with skepticism.  In the case where all registration numbers
are asterisked, it is possible that the chemical in question is not efficacious
for the pest group addressed by this report; another of the chemicals in the
formulation may, in fact, be providing the control.

Site Name/Pest Name/Chemical/Registration Number
Organization: Type of Pesticide - Site Name - Pest Name - Chemical
              Code - Registration Number

This microfiche set contains five discipline-related subsets:  herbicides,
algaecides and growth regulators; antimicrobials and protozoa; insecticides,
acaricides, molluscicides and antifouling compounds; fungicides and nematicides;
and rodenticides and technical grade chemicals lacking pest claims.  Within
each discipline-related subset, the data are arranged by generic site names
as interpreted from pesticide labeling.  Under each site term appear the
pest terms found on pesticide labeling which are associated with that site
term.  Under each pest term are listed the. chemicals (in code order), singly
or in groups of two or more as they appear in the active ingredient state-
ments of pesticide products.  Under each chemical appear the registration
numbers of pesticide products containing the above site^est/chemical
conbination.

The user should be warned of the potential pitfalls in the use of the generic
sites.  All too often, more information than just the type of treatment is
lost in their use.  Varietal types and synonymous or more specific site names
are also lost in the transition from specific site codes to generic site name.
For example, the site 64001OA - "Wood Protection Treatment to Seasoned Forest
Products" will not list the specific wood sites from pesticide labeling (e.g.
railroad ties, lumber, poles, posts, timber, wood laundry poles, rough sawn
cedar, etc.) which are listed at the specific site code level.

Chemical/Site Name/Pest Name/Registration Number
Organization:  Type of Pesticide  Chemical Cede  Site Name 
               Pest Name  Registration Number.

The five discipline-related subsets of microfiche are the same as for the
Site Name/Pest Name/Chemical/Registration Number set.  The generic site
name level has been dramatically streamlined.  In order to avoid the
complexity and confusion caused by numerous chemical combinations for a
given chemical (over 400 combinations for some chemicals), all site/pest/
registration number information for a given chemical is being listed under
one chemical code.  Each chemical therefore, is listed only once, in code
order.  Under each chemical appear the site terms found on pesticide
labeling, in Site Name (Supraqualified) order.  Under each site term appear
the pest terms in Pest Name order.  Under each pest term appear the
registration numbers of pesticide products containing the above chemical/site/
pest combination.  Registration numbers corresponding to products containing
more than one active ingredient are preceded by an asterisk.  Unasterisked
registration numbers represent products that contain only the subject chemical.

Care should be exercised when interpreting information from this data set,
and chemical/site/pest combinations containing only asterisked registration
numbers should be viewed with skepticism.  In the case where all registration
numbers are asterisked, it is possible that the chemical in question is not
efficacious for a given site/pest combination; another of the chemicals in
the formulation may, in fact, be providing the control.

Because each chemical is only listed once in ascending chemical order at the
site name level, a chemical index to this level is not needed.

Chemicals Omitted from Site/Pest Microfiche

The following list (by chemical code) of active ingredients has been suppressed
from the microfiche sets because of their being petroleum oils or solvents.
Had these chemicals been included, the microfiche sets would have been much
larger and much more complex.

    006501  Aromatic petroleum derivative solvent
    006601  Aromatic petroleum distillate, oil, solvent or
            hydrocarbons
    006602  Heavy aromatic naphtha
    054002  Methylated naphthalenes
    063501  Kerosene
    063502  Mineral oil, mineral seal oil or white mineral oil
    063503  Petroleum distillate, oils, solvent, or hydrocarbons;
            also paraffinic hydrocarbons, aliphatic hydrocarbons,
            paraffinic oil

                                       SAMPLE QUESTIONS

A.   What chemicals are  used  to control mosquitoes in  the larval  stage?  Wiat
     are  the  registration numbers of the products containing these chemicals?

Step 1.   Use the  Pest Name/Chemical/Registration Number fiche.   Under the
           pest name MOSQUITOES (LARVAE) you  will  find  the chemicals and the
           registration numbers of the products registered for the control of
           mosquito larvae.  Keep  in mind that the asterisked registration
           numbers  contain other active  ingredients as  well as the chemical
           listed.

C.   Vfoat  chemicals are  registered  for use  on  swamps,  marshes, bogs,  and standing
     water to  control adult mosquitoes?
Step  1.   Use  the Site Name/Pest Name/Chemical/Registration Number fiche for
            insecticides.   Locate  site name swamps,  marshes, bogs,  and  standing water
            (permanent)  and then pest name mosquitoes  (adult).   The chemicals  registered
            for  this use will be listed  in chemical  code order,  first listing  the single
            active  ingredient products and then  those products  that are chemical  mixtures.

    Filing of the Microfiche
    
    The following 38 cut-out tabs are attached to facilitate the filing of your
    fiche sets.  Because of the predetermined dimensions of the fiche, it is
    suggested that you use 4x6 inch file cards (arranged vertically); attach the
    tabs with rubber cement to the top (narrow) edge of each card.
    
    Each tab is titled to reflect the fiche set(s) that follow it.  It is
    reconroended that the envelopes used to package the fiche be discarded as the
    fiche are removed and filed.  Each set of fiche will have its title atop each
    fiche page.  It is recommended that the file arrangement parallel that used in
    the listing on pages 5-7.
    
    A variation on this filing system might group all of the site/chemical/
    registration number, site/pest/chemical/registration number, and chemical/
    site/pest/registration number fiche by the various disciplines (e.g. herbicide
    site name/chemical/registration number followed by herbicide site name/pest
    name/chemical/registration number followed by herbicide chemical/site name/
    pest name/registration number).
