EPA is seeking feedback on the national usage and needs patterns for the insecticide Dimethoate. If this product is of use in your cropping systems, you may want to respond to this request for information. Below is the original request I received....
The registrant has requested our assistance in providing feedback on the use and needs for dimethoate. The information will be used for its ongoing Registration Review (see the following link).
The survey is available at:
Survey responders can be: Grower; Independent Crop Advisor; Extension Agent; Extension Specialist; Research Scientist - University; Pesticide Regulator - State; Pesticide Regulator - Federal; Pesticide Retailer; R&D/Sales Specialist - Company; Research Scientist - Company; and Research Scientist - Federal.
The survey will close on December 31 and the results will be provided to the registrant, EPA and the four regional IPM Centers and will be useful for the Focus Meeting planned for after December. An evaluation of the effectiveness of this online tool will be assessed afterwards. No additional surveys are being planned at this time.
Many thanks to the Southern Region IPM Center and Virginia Tech for developing this online tool!
