Serving over 350 Washington Commodities
The 1995 Washington State Legislature created the Washington State Commission on Pesticide Registration (WSCPR) to assist users of pesticides in obtaining and maintaining pesticide registrations for minor uses in Washington State. To more fully meet the state's pest management needs, the 1999 Legislature authorized the WSCPR to fund all forms of pest management options including biological, cultural and chemical control of pests.
The Washington State Commission On Pesticide Registration seeks research proposals that will support Washington pest management. The Commission meets quarterly and reviews the proposals annually at the December meeting. The WSCPR also hosts an annual agriculture tour which highlights the pest issues for the diverse crops of our state.
Please contact us for information on participating in meetings, being involved in the pest tour or submitting proposals. The last meeting for 2020 is Dec. 10th & 11th and will be held through Zoom. This meeting includes presentations for research proposals and will offer a total of 9 pesticide credits through WSDA. For registration information please contact us here: Info for Dec. meetings
The annual agriculture tour was held virtually in August 2020. Please see the WSCPR 2020 Ag Tour page to view the videos of the diverse crops and pest management issues in Washington.
Due to Covid-19 the WSCPR has had to adapt to ever changing guidelines. Please contact us below to stay informed on meeting participation and our agriculture tour.
