IR-4 is the only publicly supported research program in the United States that provides this service.

Successful applicants will demonstrate the capacity and commitment required to accelerate the registration of newer, reduced risk pest management tools; expedite access to these pest management tools for minor/specialty crop growers, and conduct efficacy research to identify new and more effective minor/specialty crop pest management solutions.

The FY 2010 IR-4 Program will fund four geographically-based IR-4 Regional Centers and an IR-4 National Headquarters.
