Registration for 2022 Regulatory Conference is Now Open!

CPDA is excited to announce that the Council will be joining with CLA and RISE to co-host the 2022 Regulatory Conference scheduled for April 20-22 at the Marriot Metro Center in Washington D.C.! We are pleased to hold the conference in-person this year after last year's virtual meeting. As we continue to tackle topics such as agricultural innovations, sustainability, chemistries, pesticide communications, and the return of EPA Labels Live!, we are excited to explore these subjects and discover how they impact your organization and the pesticide and plant health industries. Get ready for intriguing speakers, networking opportunities, and a chance to learn more about our most pressing issues! 

Among the many informative and educational sessions that will be featured, two are breakouts of special interest to CPDA members.

One of the sessions, titled Adjuvants: The Next Generation will discuss how adjuvants have gone through tremendous changes over the last 25 years and have provided significant increased improvement in pesticide performance. As well as the ongoing challenge to match the best adjuvants with the pesticide to increase deposition and maintain drift reduction. The second session will discuss CPDA Adjuvant Certification and Adjuvant Application Enhancement Programs. The first part of this session will focus on how the CPDA Adjuvant Certification Program requires a set of data to meet certification standards. The second part of this session will focus on the importance of the Adjuvant Application Enhancement Program, which provides information for matching pesticides to optimum spray tip and drift reduction adjuvant.

The Regulatory Conference will also include a general session featuring a panel of EPA officials who will be discussing current and future agency priorities.
