Crop Profiles

PEAP has participated in a USDA national initiative to provide comprehensive, accurate data on historical pesticide use. These compilations of data, termed crop profiles, provide the complete production story for a commodity.

USDA and EPA use crop profiles and other usage information sources to help devise sound regulations and policies to ensure the US continues to have an abundant supply of food crops and other commodities while minimizing any potential pesticide-related risks.

The below Maryland crop profiles may be viewed with the Adobe Acrobat Reader (download a free version of Acrobat Reader).

Crop profiles developed by other states are available from USDA's National Information System of the Regional IPM Centers .
