The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) product approval process is protracted, and often challenging, for any given product. Further complicating matters are the ensuing — often expensive — data, recordkeeping, and advocacy requirements associated with obtaining FIFRA product approvals.

The subtleties of FIFRA are presented in a clear and business-focused context.
