Program Areas

To deliver on our mission goals of supporting pest control product registration for specialty crops, the IR-4 Project has three program areas:

  • Food Use Program
    Facilitates regulatory approval of sustainable pest management technology for food crops to promote public health and well being
  • Environmental Horticulture
    Helps growers of ornamental crops by expanding existing pest management product labels and pursuing new products for registration through efficacy and crop safety trials
  • Integrated Solutions
    Encompasses research on conventional chemistries, biological products and other non-conventional pest management solutions for growers of both food and ornamental crops
