Description

Abstract Text:
The goal of IR-4 Project is to develop the data needed by the US Environmental Protection Agency to support the regulatory approval of safe and effective conventional pesticides and biopesticides for fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs and ornamental crops as well as specialty uses on major (corn, soybean, cotton, etc.) crops. The IR-4 Project is needed because registrants of crop protection technology focus their development effort in major crops. IR-4 fills the niche by developing the required data to extend these registrations to specialty crops/minor uses. IR-4 Headquarters manages and coordinates all activities of national IR-4 Project including all activities with collaborators and researchers, the crop protection industry, State Agricultural Experiment Stations, EPA, USDA and cooperating foreign governments.IR-4 continues to provide significant products and outcomes to directly answer the request for assistance submitted by specialty crop growers, producers and commodity associations. On an annual basis, IR-4 data is used to facilitate over 2,000 new food and non-food registrations for critical pests in specialty crops. IR-4 focuses its efforts on registration of conventional pesticides and biopesticides deemed lower risk for humans and the environment while giving the specialty crop producers technology to better manage diseases, pests and weeds in a sustainable and environmentally manner. Some of these products are of acute need for use in IPM systems. The food chain benefits because these registrations reduce pest damage and maintains crop yield and quality while providing consumers and food processors with an ample supply of fruits, vegetables, herbs, ornamentals and other specialty crops that make up a healthy diet and enhances the environment.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
