Abstract

This dataset contains an analysis of chemical fumigant usage for nine major strawberry producing counties in California from 2004 to 2013. Five counties are production counties; four are nursery counties. Raw data on all pesticide applications on a county basis was collected from California's Pesticide Use Reporting System and filtered by pesticide category (fumigant) and commodity (strawberry). These data are geo-coded by Township-Range-Section. The data set also contains pivot tables and charts that show trend data for pounds applied and acres treated over time.
