The pesticide application is a double-edged sword for agriculture and forestry. There exist pollutions for ecosystem as pesticide manufacturing, circulating and application. A life-cycle pesticide management (LPM) concept was put forward which could be benefit to the environment ecosystem, especially in rural regions. A sound pesticide management legal system, a nationwide pesticide application training network, a web-based life-cycle pesticide management system could be set up.

The registration, manufacturing, packaging, distribution, application, supervision of pesticides and the punishment for violence against the legal system were included in the legal system. The training system was analyzed. In the web-based LPM system, the manufacturing, circulating and application were put into the systematic network for fully controlling the whole pesticide life cycle. Several operator-friendly advanced pesticide applications were analyzed.
