|Pesticide registration and label expansion for minor crops|
The IR-4 Project is a federally-funded program dedicated to providing pest management solutions to growers of "minor use" crops, including fruits, vegetables and ornamentals.
The USDA and state land grant universities organized IR-4 in 1963 to address the shortage of registered pesticides for crops that are considered minor use, or grown on fewer than 300,000 acres.
IR-4 is part of a national effort to ensure environmentally safe compounds are used wisely in agriculture.
