Insect Resistance Management
The U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA) requires growers who purchase and plant insect-protected seed to follow an Insect Resistance Management (IRM) plan. The main benefit of an IRM plan is to help prevent insect populations from becoming resistant to B.t. technology. As we all know, it is in the best interest of seed companies and their farmer customers to protect the integrity and viability of these valuable tools.
Providing farmers with tools to understand why IRM is essential and how to be compliant is a critical component of IRM. Please use the appropriate IRM guide for your business below, and help us educate about the requirements and how to follow them.
