Welcome to the Washington State Pest Management Resource Service’s (WSPRS) pesticide label database. This free, searchable database is operated by Washington State University through funding provided from the Washington State Department of Agriculture, the Oregon Department of Agriculture, Oregon State University, and WSU.
PICOL contains selected information from pesticide products registered in either Oregon, Washington, or in both states. Washington data includes Section 3, Section 25b, Section 24c, Section 18, adjuvants, and federal supplemental labels. It does not include EUPs. Oregon data includes Section 3, Section 25b, Section 24c, and federal supplemental labels. It does not include EUPs or Section 18 labels.
PICOL provides electronic copies (i.e., PDFs) of most Washington and many Oregon registered labels. PDFs are only accepted directly from WSDA and ODA. NOTE: WEB LABELS ARE FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. THIS DATABASE IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR OBTAINING, READING, AND FOLLOWING PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS. PICOL INFORMATION HAS NO LEGAL STATUS, WHEREAS THE CONTAINER LABEL IS A LEGAL DOCUMENT.
This site offers three search options: Express and Quick Searches are available for current-year data only, while the Advanced Search allows users to search either for current records or for recently cancelled products. Search results can be exported to Excel® manually and APIs can be created for automated searches.
PICOL does not include tolerance information or maximum residue limits. WSPRS’ staff recommend users access either EPA’s instructional page on searching the Code of Federal Regulations or the Global MRL database.
A note about Organic products in PICOL:
Certified organic operations must seek approval from their certifier prior to the use of any input on organic crops or land, or in an organic processing facility. Users are responsible for confirming the organic status of any product prior to use.
- PICOL organic designations reflect certifier approval at a given point in time; because status may change without notice, always check the current WSDA Organic Program or OMRI lists for the most current product status.
- Organic designation in PICOL is only given to products approved for organic use by WSDA, OMRI, the EPA, or other certifier approved by the USDA National Organic Program.
- WSPRS does not actively seek or solicit organic status information from OMRI, the EPA, or other certifier. With the exception of data received from the WSDA Organic Program, PICOL’s "organic" designation is based solely on information contained on a product label as received from WSDA or ODA.
