EPA Launches PestWise Web Site

EPA’s office of Pesticide Programs has a new website on non-regulatory programs for reducing pesticide risk through environmental stewardship – partnerships, grants and education. The site, PestWise: Partnerships for Environmental Innovation in Pest Management, has information for industry professionals, growers, schoolteachers, and anyone interested in learning more about responsible pest management to reduce pesticide risk. It also contains information on grants available to support projects that demonstrate the effectiveness of Integrated Pest Management and biopesticides. The PestWise site spotlights the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program, the agency’s partnership program dedicated to reducing pesticide risk where people live, work, play, and farm. The site also features information on the Strategic Agricultural Initiative, IPM in Schools Program, Biopesticide Demonstration Grant Program and other grant programs.  The new site may be accessed here.
