Resistance management for sustainable agriculture and improved public health

Crop Protection Team

The three Core Activities of IRAC are Crop Protection, Biotechnology and Public Health. Crop Protection is the area where traditionally IRAC has been most active and as a result a number of Working Groups have been formed where the majority of the work is carried. Hence the Crop Protection Team largely acts in a coordinating role for the Crop Working Groups and most of the information can be found under the relevant Crop Team Pages, Lepidoptera, Coleoptera and Sucking Pests.

Team Objectives

  • Identify potential, new or existing resistance issues. Set up, re-establish or disband Crop Working Groups as necessary
  • Increase IRAC footprint
  • Develop IRM guidelines
  • Development of joint baseline/monitoring programs
  • Investigate and make recommendations on the extent that IRAC should be involved in other IPM activities that impact IRM
  • Continue to produce high quality educational material and IRM educational tools
