The objective of the Biopesticide Regulatory Support program is to further the development and registration of biopesticides for use in pest management systems on specialty crops or for specialty uses on major crops.
IR-4 provides regulatory assistance to public sector scientists and small businesses navigating the EPA registration process.
Biopesticides include microorganisms, plant extracts, natural products and biotechnology.
