The Pesticide Program is responsible for regulating the distribution, storage, and use of all pesticides in the state of Nebraska. The goal of the pesticide program in meeting its statutory responsibilities is to protect the citizens of Nebraska and the environment from the harmful effects of pesticides by ensuring these products are handled, stored, and used properly, safely, and effectively. To carry out this goal, the pesticide program has made education and training a priority combined with a vigorous inspection and enforcement program.
