It is devoted to all aspects of the agrochemical industry, from new inert ingredients, formulations, application equipment and application techniques to regulatory requirements. This year will include presentations on biopesticides, drift reduction, and development of multi-active formulations as well as commentary from some of the original members of Subcommittee E35.22 on Pesticide Formulations and Delivery Systems on the changes they have observed and addressed in the industry over the past 30 years. In addition, this year's keynote speaker will be Dr. P. V. Shah, chief of the Inert Ingredient Assessment Branch, Registration Division, EPA.
