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 commercial plant and fish producers, beekeepers, 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 homeowners 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.
