CalAg Permits

The Pesticide Use Enforcement Division is responsible for protecting human health and the environment by regulating pesticide use. The Agricultural Commissioner's office is responsible for issuing pesticide permits and overseeing both growers and agricultural pest control businesses.

Information for Growers

The laws regarding pesticide use and employee safety are complex. The goal of The Answer Book 2011 Manual is to approach the subject using common sense. This manual covers, in plain English, the basic regulatory requirements.

In many instances, compliance with regulation is easier than it first appears. Growers have, over the years, discovered ways to simplify compliance, and we include many of their ideas. We begin with a page of definitions that are often misunderstood; cover requirements for growers, including employer responsibilities; and end with the most commonly requested references and forms.

While this manual should simplify compliance, it will not have the answer to every question. Please do not hesitate to call our office with questions on your specific operation.
