Summary

This data set brings together and categorizes many of the chemicals, solids, and microorganisms that are used in agriculture or produced as by-products of agriculture in the United States (as of 2009). Each entry in the data set includes the name, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number, purpose(s) in agriculture, and a reference. For pesticides and their degradates, the pesticidal use, parent pesticide, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency Pesticide Chemical Code are included. The data were compiled as part of a U.S. Geological Survey study to improve the understanding of field-scale and watershed-scale hydrology and the environmental behavior of individual chemicals. The goals of the study were to provide a foundation [...]

Purpose

This data set was compiled to demonstrate the wide range of chemicals that are used in agriculture or produced as by-products of agriculture in the United States as of 2009. This dataset can be used by water and agricultural managers and policy makers to help identify the breadth of chemicals that are part of agriculture and aid in understanding their potential human and environmental impacts.
