Pesticide

Pesticide particle testing standards are published by ASTM. They cover Determination of Particles Resulting from the Attrition of Granular Pesticides, Particle Size Distribution of Granular Carriers and Granular Pesticides, and Particle Counts Per Pound of Granular Carriers and Dry-Applied Granular Formulations.

ASTM E2316-14(2019)e1

Standard Test Method for Determination of Particles Resulting from the Attrition of Granular Pesticides

1.1 This test method is used to determine the amount and particle size distribution curve of particles with diameter 106 micrometers or smaller resulting from the attrition of granular pesticides. 1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statement, see Section 8 . 1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

ASTM E726-01(2021)

Standard Test Method for Particle Size Distribution of Granular Carriers and Granular Pesticides

1.1 This test method is used to determine the particle size distribution of granular carriers and granular pesticides. 1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see Section 6 . 1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

ASTM E1520-99(2015)

Standard Test Method for Particle Counts Per Pound of Granular Carriers and Dry-Applied Granular Formulations

1.1 This test method is used to determine the number of particles per pound of granular carriers and granular pesticide formulations. 1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautionary statements, see Section 6 .
