Reduced Risk Pesticides and Biopesticides

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determines which pesticide active ingredients qualify as Reduced Risk. A Reduced Risk decision is actually made at the use level, for a pesticide/use combination. For more information visit the EPA Reduced Risk webpage listed in the right column.

The following are the Reduced Risk active ingredients registered in New York State for turf and ornamentals. The EPA PC (Pesticide Chemical) Code is a unique chemical code number assigned by the EPA to a particular pesticide active ingredient and can be used in product registration searches. Any pesticide product used in New York State must be registered with the Department. Please verify registration status and possible restricted use classification prior to purchase and use.
