Strategic Agriculture Initiative

The Strategic Agricultural Initiative is EPA’s outreach program to demonstrate and facilitate the adoption of farm pest management practices that will enable growers to transition away from the use of high-risk pesticides. The program helps develop pest management practices and products that are safe, effective and support the implementation of the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) with a unique focus on regional needs. The SAI Toolbox provides SAI specialists and SAI grant applicants with useful information designed to maximize the success of the program and produce the results or outcomes sought by EPA.
