    Unfortunately the EPA enforces and authorizes uses of pesticide, but has stopped gathering usage data in 2001.  The latest comprehensive study is National Science Foundation’s Center for Integrated Pest Management which outlines pesticide use from 1931 to 1997.  The study reported 4.6 billion lbs used in 1997.  A 2001 EPA report stated that the estimated annual use for pesticide in the US was 1.23 billion lbs.
