Pest Management Grants
2014/2015 solicitation available in October 2013.
The Department of Pesticide Regulation’s (DPR’s) Pest Management Research Grants Program was established to prevent unanticipated impacts of pesticide use on public health and the environment by funding development of integrated pest management (IPM) systems. Voluntary adoption of IPM reduces potential impacts without the need for regulation by reducing use of high-risk pesticides. A goal of the research funded by this grant program is to fit into a complete IPM program with the potential to be communicated to and adopted by a broader audience through an Alliance Grant.
2014/2015 solicitation available in January 2014.
DPR promotes adoption and implementation of effective IPM systems that reduce risks from pesticide use to human health and the environment through collaboration (alliances) among commodity group representatives, growers, pest control advisors and businesses, university researchers, pesticide industry representatives, conservation agencies, and sustainability certification programs.
