Database provides pesticide information.

The National Pesticide Information Retrieval System (NPIRS) database contains information about registered pesticides at the state and federal levels. It covers pesticide products registered or canceled by the Office of Pesticide Programs, chemical ingredients, company information, and a label system if the product registration number is known. The state database is searchable by active ingredient, site of application, pest to be controlled, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency registration number, product name, and company name. Multiple criteria can be entered to narrow the products listed.
