Help IR4 Help You!


The IR-4 Project provides the research necessary for pesticide registration on ornamental plants. IR4 operates as a unique partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) – both the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), the Cooperative State Research Education and Extension Service (CSREES), the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), the State Agricultural Experiment Stations (SAES), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the agrochemical industry, commodity groups, and growers.


The IR-4 Project is seeking your help to identify which pathogens, pests and weeds are most difficult to manage because you do not have enough crop protection tools for a solid rotational and integrated management program. Please take just 5 minutes of your time to fill out this survey which will guide how IR-4 focuses research funds for 2024 and 2025! Let people know if your industry needs assistance better managing everything from Asplenium to Zinnia!
