Research Project: Coordination Activities for Research to Register Minor Use of Pesticides

Location: Sustainable Agricultural Systems Laboratory

Project Number: 0500-00007-100-00
Project Type: Appropriated

Start Date: Aug 03, 2010
End Date: Aug 02, 2015

Objective:
To provide national leadership in coordination of the minor use pesticide program in ARS; to ensure compliance with all Federal GLP directives; and to review, evaluate, and coordinate the development of data on efficacy, phytotoxicity, and residue data and ensure that these data are acceptable toward obtaining registrations for minor crops.

Approach:
Interact with state and federal scientists and attend IR-4 and related meetings to determine minor use pesticide needs. Conduct meeting with ARS scientists to develop tentative annual programs, identify scientists to conduct studies, and review progress in meeting objectives. Recommend specific actions to Administrator's Office, to Area Directors, and to ONP to strengthen program activities.
