Research Project: Minor Use Pesticide Testing on Floral and Nursery Crops

Location: Horticultural Crops Research

Project Number: 0500-00007-111-00-D
Project Type: In-House Appropriated

Start Date: Oct 1, 2015
End Date: Sep 30, 2020

Objective:
Evaluate various fungicides, insecticides, and herbicides for phytotoxicity and/or efficacy on floral and nursery crop plants in support of label expansion through the IR-4 regional project.

Approach:
Selected floral and nursery crop species will be grown in the greenhouse, ground beds, or field plantings and treated according to specific protocols (timing, concentrations) with selected fungicides, insecticides, or herbicides. In some cases, chemicals will be tested for efficacy, but mostly they will be tested on plants for phytotoxicity. Data will be submitted for inclusion in the IR-4 Minor Use Testing Program.
