       IR-4 Project Mission

To Facilitate Registration of Pest Management
Solutions for Specialty Crops and Minor Uses
Minor Use Pesticide Problem
        Public Health Pesticides
• Insufficient economic incentives/small
  markets
• Few new products developed,
  registered, and marketed
• High costs to innovate
• Too many vectors and vector-borne
  diseases.
    FQPA Title II-Subpart C
FQPA authorized up to $12 million per
year to be used by the Secretary of
Health and Human Services to develop a
public health pesticide data collection
program- similar to IR-4

Resources never have been appropriated
                Why IR-4?

IR-4 has great working relationships with
industry and EPA and understands what it
takes to get chemical and biological
pesticide products registered
