REI: All pesticide products used in the production of agricultural crops have a prescribed-time restricted entry interval (REI) for worker protection. REI is stated on the label. For the most part, entry into treated areas during the prescribed time (usually hours) REI is not allowed.

PHI: The preharvest interval is the amount of time that must elapse between a pesticide application and harvest of the crop. PHI (usually days) depends on the specific pesticide label you are following, and the crop to which it is applied.

R#:If the chemical is an insecticide this is the Resistance Action Committee Code Number. Insecticdies with the same number should not be used consecutively, as they are similar in chemistry and/or mode of action and doing so may increase the risk of resistance. If the chemical is a herbicide, this is the Herbicide Rotation Guide. To avoid selecting for herbicide-resistant weeds, do not use herbicides from the same group more than once within three years. Rather, rotate to a different group every year of the production system. If the chemical is a fungicide, this is the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee Code Number. Fungicides with the same number should not be used consecutively, as they are similar in chemistry and/or mode of action and doing so may increase the risk of resistance.
