The EIQ (www.nysipm.cornell.edu/ publications/eiq/) was devised to summarize the environmental and health impacts of pesticide active ingredients. Factors such as toxicity (dermal, bird, chronic human, acute human, bee, fish, beneficial arthropod), soil half-life, leaching potential, plant surface half-life, and surface loss potential are all components of the EIQ. The result is a single EIQ value for a pesticide active ingredient. EIQs can be used to compare the environmental impact of different pesticides and pest management strategies, when multiplied by the rate of application. The EIQ provides criteria—to be used along with a grower's knowledge of efficacy, cost and resistance management—to select a pesticide product when deemed necessary.
