FIELD TRIALS TO DEVELOP DATA ON CROP PROTECTION CHEMICALS FOR VEGETABLE AND SPECIALTY CROPS
Project Number: 0500-00007-086-00
Start Date: Nov 01, 2005
End Date: Aug 09, 2010
Conduct field trials and collect residue samples to provide data for supporting petitions for pesticide tolerance in vegetable, melon, and specialty crops. Generate and submit data on phytotoxicity, crop and pest response to pesticides for the purpose of expanding registration labeling in food, ornamental, and specialty crops to IR-4 headquarters.
Evalute needs for crop protection chemicals in minor acreage crops by consulting growers and grower associations. Submit requests for pesticide clearance through IR-4 sponsor. Conduct field trials, apply pesticides, harvest and ship residue samples according to study protocols, standard operating procedures, and good laboratory practices to ensure compliance with EPA regulations for the magnitude of residue and efficacy/phytotoxicity studies.
