This international event marks the 10th anniversary of this biennial conference and provides an opportunity to discuss pesticide (and biopesticide) application issues in an informal setting with platform and poster presentations. Key workers from research institutes, industry and regulatory authorities provide a unique mix of biological and engineering sciences.

 

  While global economies have suffered turmoil since the last conference in 2008, the demand for agriculture to provide sustenance for an ever growing population continues. As standards of living improve in less fortunate populations the associated dietary changes will further the demand on land and water resources. In addition to this, it is not just food production that vies for these finite resources but crops for energy production and other industrial uses.  While the application of pesticides and bio pesticides offer opportunities in maximising production on an industrial scale it must be remembered that assistance on a small scale can also offer considerable benefits.  The papers presented here contribute to the wealth of knowledge needed to support a safe, sustainable and efficient industry.
