Trevor Nichols Research Center (Est. 1967)
Michigan fruit producers are in competition with more than 30 fruit pests that threaten to eat their crops before they can be harvested. Finding the best ways to keep fruit pest-free in Michigan while preserving the environment and ensuring economic viability for the state’s fruit growers is the objective of the 156-acre Trevor Nichols Research Center. The center supports IR-4, a program that works with growers and chemical companies to register products for use on specialty crops, including reduced-risk pesticides. It also provides growers and pest management decision makers with hands-on integrated pest management and pest scout training and education.
