Where to get the app

Coming soon

Agricultural stakeholders are an essential component to the App's success. The Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG), comprised of producers/growers and industry organizations will inform the pesticide label selection and app's development. Other stakeholders, including farm managers and pesticide handlers will participate in the app testing and evaluation.

This bilingual app for Washington agriculture contains:

  1. User friendly mobile interface to search, access, and download pesticide labels approved for use in Washington.* (Online)
  2. The health, safety, and environmental safety information in Spanish and English from 40 labels used in apple and pear production. (Offline use with online updates.)
  3. Annotated list of links to pesticide safety and WPS resources in Spanish and English. (Online)

The ¡Etiquetas de pesticidas, ahora!™/Pesticide Labels, Now!™ app described here will be free and available to everyone. It is a product of the Etiquetas bilingües de pesticidas™/Bilingual Pesticide Safety Project™. A future app, PestiSeguro™/PestiSafe™ will be available as a premium app.
