Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The records of the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) consist of 14 cubic feet of textual records reflecting the agency's administration of California's many and varied pesticide regulatory programs. The records are dated from 1950 to 2004, are separated into three subgroups, and include ten record series.
Agriculture has always been a major component of California's economy. Mention of some form of pesticide regulation responsibilities can be found in the state's budget as far back as 1923 under the Department of Agriculture's Division (sometimes Bureau) of Chemistry. Between 1962 and 1968, it appears that the Division of Chemistry shared pesticide-related responsibilities with the Division of Standardization and Inspection.
