Research Project: Field Testing of Minor Use Pesticides

Location: Temperate Tree Fruit and Vegetable Research

Project Number: 0500-00007-118-000-D
Project Type: In-House Appropriated

Start Date: Aug 3, 2020
End Date: Aug 2, 2025

Provide efficacy, phytotoxicity and yield data and residue samples for analyses to support the registration or re-registration of minor use pesticides for the control or modification of behavior of pests through Interregional Project No. 4. [NP304, C3, PS 3B]

Determine needs for minor use pesticides by consulting producers, processors, fieldmen, or their associations. Select pesticides for testing based on needs, efficacy, economics, and safety to the crop and its environment. Conduct studies on candidate pesticides in the field, nursery or greenhouse to obtain efficacy, phytotoxicity and yield data, and residue samples for analyses in accordance with protocols, standard operating procedures, and good laboratory practices.
