Integrated Solutions Research Program

This program, coordinated by the Field Team, encompasses research on conventional chemistries, biological products and other non-conventional pest management solutions for growers of both food and ornamental crops.

The Integrated Solutions program funds research in the following areas:

  • Screening of products to address emerging pest needs
  • Managing pest resistance
  • Reducing pesticide residues particularly for export
  • Pest management needs for organic production

Recently funded projects are listed on the IR-4 national site.  Requests for new projects can be submitted at any time and will be reviewed and prioritized at the annual public workshop in September of each year.
