The IR-4 Program : How It Can Benefit Nurseries

The Interregional Research Project 4 (IR-4) was initiated in 1963 to obtain national pesticide label registrations for use on food and fiber. This program has an emphasis on minor uses or specialty crops. In this arena in the United States today it includes 600 crops. This national program includes the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service (USDA/ARS), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Cooperative State Research Education and Extension Service (USDA/CSREES) as the major funding organizations. IR-4 also has a cooperative partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), the State Agricultural Experiment Stations (SAES), agricultural chemical companies, commodity organizations, and individual growers.
