1 Presidents FY13 Federal Budget Crop Protection Funding Line Susan T. Ratcliffe Ph.D. Crop Protection Visioning Teleconference March 7,

2 FY13 Presidents Budget Proposes to consolidate six funding lines in to one entitled Crop Protection in Integrated Activities Section 406 Legislative Authority Current level of proposed consolidated funds ($ M), Presidents budget ($ M), reduction of $692,000. Programs included: – IR-4 Minor Crop Pest Management Program ($ M) – Regional IPM Centers ($4 M) – E-IPM – State-based IPM Coordinators ($9.918 M) – Pest Management Alternatives Program ($1.402 M) – Regional IPM Grants Program (RIPM) ($2.362 M) – Expert IPM Decision Support System ($153,000) 2

3 IR-4 Minor Crop Pest Management Program Primary goal: provide safe, effective and economical pest management solutions for minor/specialty crop producers Accelerate registration and access of newer, reduced risk pest management tools Conduct efficacy research to identify new and more effective minor/specialty crop pest management solutions 3

4 Regional IPM Centers Overarching goals: improve cost benefit of adopting IPM practices and reduce environmental and human health risks associated with managing pests Promote development and implementation of IPM by facilitating collaboration across states, disciplines and purposes 4

5 Regional IPM Centers Serve as focal points for regional pest management information networks, collaborative team building and broad-based stakeholder participation Increase coordination of IPM research, education and extension efforts Enhance responsiveness to critical/priority pest management and global food security challenges 5

6 E-IPM State IPM Coordinators Support state and local contributions in advancing goals of the National IPM Roadmap Address priority needs associated with coordination, design, development, implementation, and evaluation of extension IPM programs in production agriculture and other settings 6

7 E-IPM State IPM Coordinators Primary elements of state extension IPM programs: – IPM team building, communication and stakeholder participation – Applied research and demonstration – Development of predictive models and information management systems – Preparation of manuals and fact sheets – Training programs for agents, consultants, scouts, growers, others – Technical assistance and trouble shooting. 7

8 Pest Management Alternatives Program (PMAP) Purpose: development and implementation of integrated pest management (IPM) practices, tactics, and systems for specific pest problems while reducing human and environmental risks Address challenges due to regulatory changes, emergence of new pest problems, and development of pest resistance to present management technologies 8

9 Regional IPM Grants Programs Support continuum of research and extension efforts needed to increase the implementation of IPM Support projects to develop individual pest control tactics, integrate individual tactics into an IPM system, and develop and implement extension and education programs 9

10 Regional IPM Grants Programs Projects may span the spectrum from development to implementation of new IPM tactics and systems to: – Improve cost benefit when adopting IPM practices – Reduce potential human health risks from pests and related management strategies – Minimize adverse environmental effects from pests and related management strategies 10

11 Expert IPM Pest Management Decision Support System Assist IPM programs maintain and communicate IPM research, education, and extension priorities including: – Allow diverse groups of stakeholders to obtain access to selected program outputs – Compile LOGIC model based program reports – Synthesize program impacts – Substantially contribute to the long-term improvement and sustainability of the IPM portfolio 11

12 Crop Protection Program Purpose of new proposed program: – Respond to pest management challenges with coordinated region-wide and national research, education and extension programs – Serve as a catalyst for promoting further development and use of IPM approaches – Foster regional and national team building efforts, communication networks, and enhanced stakeholder participation 12

13 Crop Protection Areas of Focus Plant Protection Tactics and Tools Diversified IPM Systems Enhancing Agricultural Biosecurity IPM for a Sustainable Society Development of the Next Generation of IPM Scientists 13

14 Crop Protection Program Regional IPM Centers and PMAP currently subject to indirect cost recovery, but if all programs moved to 406 Integrated Activities the other four program lines will incur indirect cost recovery USDA-NIFA is looking for increased efficiencies while promoting regional and national IPM collaborations 14

15 What elements or functions are needed as part of the new Crop Protection Program to address the five focus areas? 15
