The Role of IRAC

IRAC is prolonging the effectiveness of insecticides, acaracides and traits by implementing insecticide resistance management strategies, countering the development of resistance in the three core sectors of traditional Crop Protection, Plant Biotechnology and Public Health.

IRM Resources

Communication and education is key to promoting awareness of insecticide resistance and effective resistance management strategies worldwide. IRAC has published a wide range of communication and educational material, all of which are available free to download from the website. Printed copies of the booklets and the Mode of Action structures poster in English are available via the IRAC Coordinator.

A global response to a global problem
