International Advances in Pesticide Application


(Basis points will be applied for)




Over the last three decades the Pesticide Application Group has provided a forum for researchers from around the world to discuss progress with the development of pesticide application technology. During this time great advances have been made to improve the efficacy and safety of pesticides, resulting in lower doses of pesticides in the field, leading to lower residue levels in produce and the environment. Scientific and engineering advances can be exploited more readily with the regular contact between the many research groups working with crop protection and production techniques.

Once again it is anticipated there will be a wide range of international papers presented at the 2020 conference emphasizing the excellent research being done across the diverse disciplines to improve application techniques and pesticide safety. International collaboration is easier now than in the early days of the Pesticide Application Group, for a variety of reasons. The Aspects of Applied Biology acts as a good reference source for up to date techniques for researchers around the globe.
