Agricultural Chemicals Adverse Experience Reporting

An adverse experience is an unintended or unexpected effect on animals, human beings or the environment, including injury, sensitivity reactions or lack of efficacy associated with the clinical use of agricultural chemical products.

A number of agricultural chemical products have known side effects when used as directed. It is important to report all adverse experiences whether associated with label recommended dosing or not.
