    Past few season kept a note book in truck then would back up with photos at end of week.

    Plan on setting up yardbook chemical tracking this off season. I already use their other features and it seems to keep track of everything I need.

    Details I keep are, weather, time, target pest, chemical used and concentration, epa#, app type(spot or broadcast), sprayer used, lot size, and amount applied.

    I’ll look at those.

    Doe either have built in a chemical database to pull from, or do you have to enter the specs/names/etc yourself?

    Yardbook you'll have to input it all at least once.

    Maybe someone who uses it more can chime in as I have limited use with this feature.

    I know some chemical application features on yardbook are not included in the free option.

    Hand written into a logbook and backed up to the computer. It’s simple. I like simple.

    Why do something twice that only needs to be done once?
