Pesticide Stockpile Data Management System

The Pesticide Stockpile Management System (PSMS) is a web based application that has been developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to be used by countries to record and monitor their inventories of pesticides and their usage, in order to assist them in managing the most efficient usage. The application aims to help reduce the creation of obsolete pesticides and enable countries to plan strategies for responding more effectively to pest outbreaks.

If you want access to PSMS please send an email to PSMS@fao.org
