Section 17: Record KeepingAnchor: #i1188206
Accurate records are vital during herbicide mixing and application activities. These records permit the monitoring of the purchase and use of herbicides.
Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) law requires that records be maintained for a minimum period of two years from the date of application.
Reminder: It is very important at the start of every spraying season to begin a new record book and start the year off right.
Records also help determine the effectiveness and durability of an herbicide treatment and will help to determine when an area should be retreated. Specify any unusual conditions that may exist at the time of application and maintain daily spray records.
Your district Vegetation Manager or the Vegetation Management Staff of the Maintenance Division can supply you with additional record books.
