What are the advantages of a digitized record keeping system for pesticide spray records?
A paper version can be lost, damaged, hard to read, and so on. A digitized record will be accessible to the user at any time or place via their Smartphone.
Will the record generated by this app meet the requirements for record keeping for the PEI Department of Environment, Water and Climate Change?
This format of record keeping has been accepted by the Pesticide Program, Department of Environment, Water and Climate Change (PEIDEWCC), as an alternative way to record pesticide applications to meet the requirements of the Pesticides Control Act and Regulations
Will the government of Prince Edward Island have access to my pesticide application records if I use this app?
The government of PEI will not keep a database of pesticide applications or monitor entries in the app. In fact, the only access government will have to the information contained would be when pesticide records are requested by the PEIDEWCC and the farmer/pesticide applicator makes the records available (as they would with the paper log books).
Will I still be able to access a hard copy of the field record keeping log?
PEIDA will continue to produce the manual versions and distribute to farmers. Written field record keeping logs will still be acceptable.
What does the app cost?
It is offered at no cost to agricultural producers.
