Entomologists Seek Safer Pest Management Tech for NYSSpecialty crop entomologists from Cornell AgriTech and the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program (NYSIPM) will use a three-year, $450,000 grant from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets to evaluate alternatives for controlling insect pests that threaten the state's $1.4 billion specialty crop industry.
The scientists will explore alternatives to neonicotinoids and chlorpyrifos, which have been shown to harm the environment - as well as pollinators and other beneficial insects - by mounting evidence, including a 2020 analysis of neonicotinoid use in New York by Cornell's Dyce Lab for Honeybee Studies.
