Sensitive Crops

  Welcome to the Ohio Sensitive Crop Registry

The Ohio Sensitive Crop Registry (OSCR) is a free and secure web map showing locations in Ohio which are susceptible to damage by pesticide drift or off-target applications. Information is voluntarily provided and mapped by commercial plant producers and beekeepers. These maps and lists of locations are made available to pesticide applicators and other Registry users.

This registry is reserved for beekeepers, commercial plant and fish producers, and pesticide applicators. Commercial plant production includes orchards, nurseries, greenhouses, tomato and grape productions as well as organic crops. Sensitive habitats are currently not included on the Registry, nor is this site intended for residential landscapes or individuals with pesticide sensitivity.

Good relations and communication with your neighbors remains the best way to reduce the risk of pesticide damage. Using OSCR is a simple way of informing pesticide applicators that your production area is sensitive to pesticides. The Registry also provides a secure way for beekeepers to share their hive locations with applicators and receive notifications from them about future spraying.

If you would like to search the registry only:

  • Create an account and check the box for Applicator.
  • Once you receive a username and password via email, you may sign-in to the Registry and click the “Sensitive Crops Search” tab that appears.

If you would like to add your production or apiary to the registry:

  • You will need to create an account and check the box for either Producer or Apiarist. You may also select Applicator if you want to search the registry as well.
  • After you receive your username and password via email, you will need to draw your property on the map to add your hive(s) or production location(s) to the registry. Please see the User Manual or Quick-start Guide for details.
