The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) established its Pest Management Research Grant Program to develop practices that reduce the use of and risk from pesticides that are of human health or environmental concern in California.

Voluntary adoption of these practices, through use of integrated pest management (IPM) systems, reduces use of high-risk pesticides and reliance on regulations to minimize risks associated with these pesticides. Effective California IPM systems developed with the aid of a research grant may be promoted in the future through DPR’s Pest Management Alliance Grants Program, which emphasizes outreach and implementation.
