Over the last three decades the Association Of Applied Biologists, Pesticide Application Group has provided a forum for researchers and practitioners from around the world to present and 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 regular contact between the many research groups, and commercial organisations working with crop protection techniques.
Once again it is anticipated there will be a wide range of international papers presented at the 2022 conference emphasizing the excellent research being done across the diverse disciplines to improve application techniques and pesticide safety. All papers will be published in The Aspects of Applied Biology, which acts as a good reference source for up to date techniques for researchers around the globe.
