In an effort to create integrated pest management solutions for farmers, Monsanto has committed to funding of a competitive research program, designed to draw on the expertise of a broad based collaboration that includes the public, private and non-profit sectors. Working collaboratively, our collective understanding of insects will be enhanced and economical, practical and sustainable solutions for farmers may be created.
The first program, called the Corn Rootworm Knowledge Program, identified and funded 13 proposals for Corn Rootworm research. The newest program, which is called the Insect Management Knowledge Program, expands the program to all U.S. Row Crops and all economically significant row crop pests.
