IRAC is prolonging the effectiveness of insecticides, acaricides and traits by implementing insecticide resistance management strategies, countering the development of resistance in the three core sectors of traditional Crop Protection, Plant Biotechnology and Public Health.
Communication and education is key to promoting awareness of insecticide resistance and effective resistance management strategies worldwide. IRAC has published a wide range of communication and educational material, all of which are available free to download from the website. Such communication and educational materials may be used in their entirety and/or portions of such materials may be used freely so long as the appropriate citations are provided for all the applicable authors, materials and/or website. Printed copies of the booklets and the English version of the Mode of Action poster with the structures are available via the IRAC Coordinator.
