Location: Application Technology Research Unit

Project Number: 0500-00007-092-00
Project Type: Appropriated

Start Date: Jul 17, 2010
End Date: Jul 16, 2015

Objective:
Obtain performance data and/or residue samples or analyze crop samples to support the registration of minor-use pesticides for food, ornamental and specialty crops.

Approach:
Minor-use pesticides alone or in combination with cultural and mechanical methods will be evaluated under field, orchard, nursery and greenhouse conditions through determination of pest control by species, crop injury and crop yield. Plant samples will be collected for determination of pesticide residues according to protocols and good laboratory practices specified by the National IR-4 Headquarters.
