The Chemical Producers & Distributors Association (CPDA) announces its 2012 Adjuvants & Inerts Conference will be held May 15-16 at the Hilton President Hotel in Downtown Kansas City, Mo. Now in its 10th year, the annual conference serves as a valuable educational forum, presenting the latest on plant production technologies and pest management and regulatory issues that impact crop and non-crop production.
According to CPDA President Sue Ferenc, Ph.D., the 2012 conference promises to be one of the most popular, as it will cover the latest technologies for improving crop protection and production. Scheduled topics include:
- Ways to effectively manage weed and insect resistance with generic pesticides;
- Using soil amendments to improve water use efficiency and soil health;
- New technologies available in reducing spray drift; and
- Meeting the 300-bushel per acre corn challenge through the use of micronutrients.
“The Annual Adjuvants & Inerts Conference has steadily grown into one of the most informative venues for people in all segments of the plant protection products industry, especially researchers, product distributors, retail organizations and applicators,” Ferenc says. “As the theme for this year’s program implies, we’re focusing on a number of cutting-edge technologies that hold great promise in helping growers more effectively manage the numerous crop pest and nutrient challenges that limit yields.”
Ferenc says they have lined up some of the most knowledgeable presenters in their respective fields for the conference and encourages people interested in attending to register early.
