IR-4 Project survey under way

Help focus the group’s research by participating in survey

Staff | July 22, 2010

 The IR-4 Project’s Ornamental Horticulture Program helps provide safe and effective pest management solutions for greenhouse, nursery, landscape, Christmas tree and forestry producers. The group works with growers, researchers, registrants and regulatory agencies to facilitate new product registrations. It also works to place new diseases, insects and weeds, as well as new crops, on already registered ornamental horticulture product labels. Every other year, the group prioritizes the next two-year research plan at its ornamental horticulture workshop. To help the group focus its research prioritization, please answer a few questions about the diseases, insects, and weeds which impact your business.
