Pesticides and PARC

The Pesticide and Fertilizer programs regulate the sale and use of pesticides and fertilizers in Oregon with the following goals:

  • Protect people and the environment from any adverse effects of pesticide use while maintaining the availability of pesticides for beneficial uses
  • Assure that effective fertilizer, agricultural mineral, agricultural amendment, and lime products are provided for agricultural and consumer uses​
