Research Project: Field Testing of Minor Use Pesticides

Location: Fruit and Vegetable Insect Research

Project Number: 0500-00007-094-00
Project Type: Appropriated

Start Date: Sep 01, 2010
End Date: Aug 31, 2015

Objective:
Provide efficacy, phytotoxicity and yield data and residue samples for analyses to support the registration or re-registration of minor use pesticides for the control or modification of behavior of pests through Interregional Project No. 4. Proposed research is relevant to the NP304 Action Plan, Component 2 - Protection of Agricultural and Horticultural Crops; Problem Statement 2b, Control. Relevance to Action Plan:

Approach:
Determine needs for minor use pesticides by consulting producers, processors, fieldmen, or their associations. Select pesticides for testing based on needs, efficacy, economics, and safety to the crop and its environment. Conduct studies on candidate pesticides in the field, nursery or greenhouse to obtain efficacy, phytotoxicity and yield data, and residue samples for analyses in accordance with protocols, standard operating procedures, and good laboratory practices.
