Identifying and Managing Critical Uses of Chlorpyrifos in Alfalfa, Almonds, Citrus and Cotton

The UC Statewide IPM Program is coordinating the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR)-funded project. The full report was posted in October 2014.

The outreach phase of this project will be held in late 2015 and early 2016 and includes UC IPM staff and representatives from DPR, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and county agricultural commissioner offices. Sessions led by local farm advisors will present relevant IPM information and regulatory updates. Continuing education hours will be provided for pest control advisers. Revised UC Pest Management Guidelines and a new web-based decision support tool will be featured.

For general information on the project, contact the Principal Investigator Dr. Pete Goodell or Project Coordinator Dr. Lori Berger.
