EPA Plant Pesticides Workshop

Project Period:

0000-00-00 - 0000-00-00

Principal Investigator:

EPA with Ann Sorensen, CAE; Mike Wallace, National Foundation for IPM Education

Description
EPA, with the National Foundation for IPM Education, hosted a day and a half workshop to discuss the proposed regulations for plant-pesticides, first published in November 1994. EPA contracted with CAE to provide proceedings for the workshop. "Plant-pesticides" is the term used to describe plants which have been genetically engineered to resist attack from pests. EPA provided a clear explanation of what is contained in the proposed rule and how the agency believes it will implement plant-pesticide regulations with regard to data requirements, waivers and reviews. The seed industry (both public and private), in turn, explained their industry, needs and concerns about the proposed regulation.

Outcomes
Proceedings of the workshop laying out a blueprint for plant pesticide registration.
