Databases Help

  • Please enter details into any or all of the search criteria boxes and then press 'Get Results'.
  • The search is not case sensitive.
  • You may use wildcards (%) and part names instead of entering the full name. However, using wildcards on either side of the search term will slow the search down considerably.
  • Crops must be entered in the singular for example 'apple' not 'apples'. For all 'pea crops' enter '%pea%' and for all 'bean crops' including runner bean enter '%bean%'.
  • Searches now use a structured list of crops, the Crop Hierarchy . An introduction and details of the Crop Hierarchy is available along with a search facility for crop conversion.
  • Guidance on searching the Pesticide Register Database is available in a User Guide.
  • Guidance is also available on how to use the Garden Pesticides Search.
  • links to these guides are also given on the Search Screen pages.
  • To help you find information on details of authorised pesticide products we have a list of answers to frequently asked questions.
