Food Use Workshop

The Food Crop Program holds a workshop every year to establish national research priorities for residue studies, efficacy and crop safety research, and integrated solutions projects for the following year.

2022 Regional Meetings

In advance of each year’s Food Use Workshop, IR-4 region staff will meet to discuss pest management priorities that have been identified in their local communities. These needs are then prioritized on the regional level before being considered for prioritization at the Food Use Workshop.

The following regional meetings have been scheduled to identify local priorities for the 2022 Food Use Workshop:
