Committee to Advise on Reassessment and Transition - Paper #9

Support For Minor Use Pesticides

EPA's program for minor use crops

  • Provide greater coordination between EPA and minor use growers prior to Agency decisions;
  • Increase coordination with USDA, the Inter-Regional Research Project #4, industry, growers, and other stakeholders to promote registration and use of reduced-risk pesticides for minor uses; and
  • Encourage the development of pesticide use and residue data by growers, USDA, and other stakeholders for use in refining risk assessments.

Priority consideration for minor uses during the registration process

  • establishing tolerances for multiple crops for selected reduced-risk chemicals, significantly reducing review time;
  • improving the tolerance petition format and creating new crop groupings;
  • streamlining the reduced risk justification format for minor uses;
  • harmonizing registration data development with other countries.
