Compiled by J. Baron, IR-4 Project
This New Pest Control Products/Transition Solutions List contains brief descriptions of numerous new pest control materials that have been introduced over the last several years. It
also contains information on some “older” crop protection chemicals that are believed to have potential for new uses. Many of these pest control tools offer great promise to fill the pest
management voids that are from the cancellation of pesticides/pesticide uses associated with the Food Quality Protection Act. A number of these new products have been classified by the
EPA as reduced risk for one or more uses while others have characteristics that make them more desirable than some of the existing products. Several of the pest control materials have
been registered by the EPA for certain crops, while others have their initial registration pending. In most cases, the usefulness of these new tools on specialty crops is still unknown.
