About

Development of The Pesticide Stewardship Website is funded by the NSF-founded Center for Integrated Pest Management. The goals of the Web site are to summarize general principles of pesticide stewardship and to direct users to key resources (including state-specific regulations) by stewardship topic.

This web site will not “re-invent the wheel”. Rather, significant time will be directed toward identification of existing resources, content review, and selection of best starting materials to ensure the retrieval of accurate and complete-but-concise educational materials.
