Our Mission


The mission of the Delaware Department of Agriculture Pesticides section is to provide the State of Delaware with an exceptional pesticide regulatory program which is educationally based, equitably enforced, and protective of the environment, crops, property, and the health and welfare of all citizens.

We provide a variety of services. Please select from the information below, the navigation menu on the right, or contact us with specific questions.
