The Insecticide Resistance Action Committee: Education Initiative

G.D. Thompson


Resistance to crop protection agents threatens the economic viability of the crop protection industry. To address resistance in arthropods to crop protection agents industry has formed Insecticide Resistance Action Committees (IRAC) on the global and country level. IRAC committees have three major actives: 1) conducting resistance surveys on the extent and type of resistance and developing methods to conduct surveys, 2) developing sound resistance management guidelines and sponsoring research to confirm their effectiveness, and 3) assisting with educational efforts and implementation of management strategies. An overview of IRAC progress and future plans in these areas is provided.
