Frequently Asked Questions
How does Greenbook acquire the labeling documents found on Greenbook.net?
Greenbook works directly with chemical manufacturers to provide users with the most up-to-date data and labeling documents. Greenbook also utilizes a secondary editorial process to gather and index labeling documents from companies that we do not have direct relationships with.
What is an MSDS?
MSDS is an acronym for Material Safety Data Sheet. These documents are mandated to accompany pesticide labeling. The MSDS contains important toxicological information relating to the product’s chemical composition and provides specific guidelines for product storage, preferred measures for spill cleanup, Worker Protection standards for application and handling, and Department of Transportation (DoT) data for proper shipping names and placard details.
Where can I find information on how to transport products?
The Department of Transportation (DOT) section listed under each chemical provides specific information regarding regulations and how to safely transport chemicals.
How do I know if a product is approved to be used in my state?
Each product has a state registration section. In this section there is a list of states where the product is approved for use.
What is Rate Finder?
The Rate Finder search function allows a user to determine the rate of application based upon their state, and specific use pattern. A user first selects the state where the product will be used, then selects a particular product for use, and then narrows the application by crop, pest and/or application method to determine the suggested application rate on the product labeling for the described use pattern. Greenbook provides this information for reference purposes only and recommends you always read the product container use for specific use instructions.
What does MoA stand for?
MoA is an acronym that stands for Mode of Action. This information describes the chemical class of the plant protection product, to help users guard against creating pest tolerance to a certain class of chemistry, and also describes how the product acts upon a pest to eliminate or suppress it.
What is Sara Title III?
SARA Title III establishes requirements for Federal, State and local governments, and industry regarding emergency planning on hazardous and toxic chemicals. Information provided by Sarah Title III helps increase knowledge and allows access to information on chemicals to improve chemical safety and avoid potentially hazardous situations.
