EPA Releases Guidance on Slowing Pest Resistance

November 14, 2017

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released two pesticide registration notices (PRNs) that impact how technology providers, crop advisers, and producers manage resistance. These documents are in addition to a new framework to address Bt resistance in corn rootworm released in 2016. These releases, which all went through public comment, provide guidance in managing resistance and support the strategies and goals of the Iowa Pest Resistance Management Plan (IPRMP).
