Environmental Risk and Pest Management - Spreadsheet 1

Environmental risk ratings for a variety of insecticides, based on formulated product - Note that these rankings differ from those reported in Higley and Wintersteen (1992), because the Higley and Wintersteen values were for risk based on active ingredient whereas those in the spreadsheet are for formulated product.

This is a preliminary version of formulated product risk data; these are based on subjective estimates and should not be regarded as absolute indications of environmental risk. Copyright Leon G. Higley 1996.
