Research Project: MINOR USE PESTICIDE TESTING ON VEGETABLES AND SUGAR CROPS Project Number: 0500-00007-090-00
Project Type: Appropriated

Start Date: Nov 01, 2005
End Date: Sep 30, 2010

Objective:
Conduct laboratory and field tests to provide residue data needed to establish a tolerance on a specific commodity or to support a crop group tolerance. To determine this tolerance, it is required that the magnitude of the residue in or on the commodity be determined as per EPA Series 860 Guidelines.

Approach:
Research to support registrations of minor use pesticides. Apply pesticides according to IR-4 protocol guidelines. Obtain performance data, phytotoxicity, yield and efficacy from treated and untreated field plots. Ship samples to laboratories for residue analyses. Protocols will be employed using appropriate Standard Operating Procedures and conducted under provisions outlined in 40CFR part 160 in accordance with EPA's Good Laboratory Practice Standards. Formerly 0500-00007-053-00D (9/04) and 0500-00007-074-00D (11/2005).
