Spray Record-keeping Spreadsheet for Orchards

This version of the spray record-keeping spreadsheet was updated in February, 2018. This year we updated the spreadsheet with over 15 new products. All updates are based on the information in the Tree Fruit Production Guide. Growers should utilize both of these tools for a complete IPM program. Throughout the year we received comments on PHI Release Date, Unit Prices and more. We've tried to incorporate all these updates. As always, feel free to send ideas and comments as you're utilizing the sheet. We hope all growers will have an excellent year and stay safe by following proper spray procedures.

This sheet should be used with a season-long Integrated Pest Management Plan. Talk to your Penn State Extension educator if you need help building one. A nice way to review the principles of IPM is to view a new Penn State Extension Video on IPM in Orchards. The video is also available in Spanish. General Instructions for Use: 1) Begin with the tab labeled "Background Info" and fill in Grower Name, Grower Number, Farm Information and Applicator Information; 2) The tabs named "Apples," "Peaches," "Cherries" and "Pears" are for recording your sprays. 3) Make an entry each time a product is used in the field by clicking the tab for the crop you wish to record. For each application, fill in columns in blue. Skipping a line before recording your next spray will create an easier to read form. Always read the pesticide label.
