Subject: Biopesticide Grant Program- First announcement 2012 Program
The IR-4 Biopesticide and Organic Support Program announces a request for grant proposals for funding of efficacy research in 2012.
IR-4 is especially interested in proposals containing biopesticides as resistance management tools, rotated with conventional products and for use as a part of organic production systems. While resistance management is an important interest, the proposal must still have a majority focus on biopesticides.
Project proposals will be accepted in Early, Advanced and Demonstration stage categories. The total amount of funding available will be around $ 400,000 but is subject to Federal funding.
The primary objective of the IR-4 Biopesticide Research Program is to further the development and registration of biopesticides for use in pest management systems for specialty crops or for minor uses on major crops.
Deadline for proposals is November 7, 2011.
