Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary
The Food and Feed Commodity Vocabulary was developed to consolidate all the major Office of Pesticide Program Commodity Vocabularies into one standardized vocabulary. The vocabulary contains only human consumable commodities and livestock feeds.
There are about 12,000 lookup or search terms in this database. Each lookup term is assigned:
- an EPA preferred term
- an EPA (40 CFR 180.41) crop group name/number
- a monograph number where further information about a specific commodity can be found.
The preferred term will be the only term accepted in establishing pesticide tolerances.
