Pesticide Use in Cannabis Production

This page is a resource for Cannabis cultivators. Here you will find a list of pesticides that fit Utah’s rules for use on Cannabis. You will also find a link to the Worker Protection Standard, a federal law that applies to agricultural producers that use pesticides.

In addition, there are resources to guide growers as they implement Integrated Pest Management strategies to protect their crops. For all other non-pesticide cannabis information go to the Cannabis Programs page.


The following list is intended to assist Utah Cannabis growers in identifying which pesticides can be used legally in accordance with the Utah Pesticide Control Rules. This list is not an endorsement or recommendation to use these products in the production of Cannabis. These products have not been tested to determine health effects if used on Cannabis that will be consumed. The health risk to the consumer is unknown, therefore, UDAF makes no assurances of their safety or effectiveness when used on Cannabis and is not responsible or liable for any use.
