By law, a person who uses an agricultural or veterinary chemical product must ensure that their chemical use is recorded.
Benefits of record keeping
An accurate record made when using a chemical product is important. Records can demonstrate that you have assessed risks and checked application rates, wind speed and withholding periods prior to chemical application.
Chemical use records can also improve your operation. Previous records can be used to inform resistance management, the quantity of chemical product needed for future applications, and overall effectiveness of your chemical use practices, to save you time and money.
Making an accurate record of chemical use takes only a minute or so, and is good insurance should things go wrong later on. For these reasons and more, there is logic in keeping chemical use records for all chemicals used.
Agricultural chemical use records
Ensure you understand the record keeping requirements of using agricultural chemicals.
Veterinary chemical use records
Ensure you understand the record keeping requirements of using veterinary chemicals, plus information on record keeping requirements for veterinarians.
