On September 10, 2014 the Biopesticide and Organic Support program will hold a Biopesticide Workshop at the Marriott Hotel Atlanta-Buckhead. The goal of the workshop is to bring together growers, extension, research and biopesticide manufacturers to discuss and prioritize research needs. These priorities will be utilized in guiding the biopesticide efficacy research grant program for 2015. The workshop will cover pest management in many diverse uses including fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, public health, honeybees, etc. The types of products will include all classes of biopesticides including natural products, pheromones, microorganisms and biotechnology products. Overall the program will emphasize integration of biopesticides into conventional programs as well as the needs of the organic community. This will conveniently be in conjunction with the IR-4 Food Use Workshop
