12:00 - 13:30 – Luncheon Seminars
ovel MS Interface For Rapid High-Throughput Pesticide
Analysis: Warp Factor 1 (Sponsored by Smithers Viscient) This
seminar will focus on the instrumentation needs of analytical
laboratories dealing with a wide variety of test materials,
numerous and complex matrices, and high sample throughput.
Applicability of Phytronix Laser Diode Thermal Desorption
(LDTD®) for pesticide testing laboratories will be presented.
Toxicology Strategies for Compound Development (Sponsored
by Huntingdon Life Sciences) Key experience will be outlined
in responding to new regulatory requirements for toxicokinetic
data, including sampling methods, study designs, and endocrine
disruption testing regimes. Benefits and potential pit falls will be
discussed to aid interpretation and decision making.
Anaerobic Conditions of Soils During the Conduct of Laboratory
Environmental Fate Studies (Sponsored by EAG)
We will explore the ability of various soils to attain strong
reducing conditions, and factors that may influence the level of
anaerobicity reached during the study. Proposed study designs,
test system selection and/or preparation strategies for achieving
the best anaerobic conditions in soils will be discussed.
A Tale of Two Countries: Herbicide Resistant Weeds in the U.S.
and Australia (Sponsored by Syngenta) Resistance is a looming
threat to USA field crop production and changes are needed
now. Dr. Stephen Powles, Director of the Australian Herbicide
Resistance Initiative, will speak about their painful lessons and
how they can help deal with the American resistance threat.
Post-merger Integration of R&D: Key Steps to Realizing its Full
Potential (Sponsored by Battelle) David Nicholson, Global
Head R&D, Bayer CropScience AG, will discuss (1) challenges in
successfully integrating R&D activities following a merger where
cultural differences must be considered, and (2) determining
the key processes needed to realize the melded team’s full R&D
18:00 – 21:00 – Dinner Seminar
Addressing Future Challenges: Crop Protection Research
Director’s Forum (Sponsored by Syngenta) Today, crop protection
research is facing major challenges such as reduced innovation
rate, weed and pest resistance, higher regulatory safety margins,
cost-effectiveness and overall increasing R&D costs. Leading
agrochemicals companies will discuss how they are addressing
present challenges and future trends.
12:00 - 13:30 – Luncheon Seminars
12:00 - 13:30 – Luncheon Seminars
Endocrine Active Substances and Disruptors: Global Policy
Challenges and Promotion of Risk-Based Regulation (Sponsored
by CropLife International) Do you know what is in your lunch?
Some cereals, fruits, and even your coffee may contain endocrine
active substances. So, how should these products be regulated?
CropLife International will discuss the increasing global concern
on endocrine active substances and disruptors, and discuss the
importance of risk-based, common sense regulation.
Leads from Crop Protection Research Against Malaria and
Neglected Diseases (Sponsored by BASF) Overlap between crop
protection and infectious disease control can be exploited to
improve both. A variety of compounds active against agronomic
pests have been examined systematically against pathogens
causing malaria and neglected diseases, with several promising
Zorvec™: The First Member of a Novel Class of Oomycete
Fungicides (Sponsored by DuPont) This luncheon seminar
will present a technical overview of the characteristics of
oxathiapiprolin (formerly “DPX-QGU42”), a novel fungicide
recently discovered by DuPont. This seminar will complement
other Congress talks and posters by reviewing more specifically
the disease control characteristics of the molecule.
Why Authentic Reference Standards are Essential for “Unknown”
Identification: A Case Study (Sponsored by Ricerca) Despite
the additional time and expense required, there is no substitute
for authentic reference standards for determining identity. We
will present a case study of how inaccurate determination of
unknowns occurred in a metabolism study and the problems
associated with inconclusive compound identification.
From the Laboratory to the Field: Enhancing the Scope of
Environmental Fate Studies (Sponsored by Huntingdon Life
Sciences) Aquatic and terrestrial case studies will show how
higher-tier studies offer an opportunity to enhance risk assessment
outcomes in addition to determining environmental fate
endpoints. Examples will show how robust testing methods can
address targeted regulatory issues in a specific, timely and cost
effective manner.
Note: The content of each seminar has been organized by the sponsor, and no endorsement
of products or opinions by the Congress or Congress organizers is implied.
Post-Congress Agricultural Field Tour
Friday, August 15
7:00 am - 5:45 pm
The post-conference ag excursion provides Congress attendees an
opportunity to directly observe the diversity, productivity and beauty of
California agriculture. The tour will be an excellent way to synthesize
many of the scientific, regulatory policy and international trade topics
discussed at IUPAC 2014.
Buses will depart and return
to the Marriott Marquis
(Conference Hotel)
Set against a backdrop of fields, vineyards and orchards, presentations
will span production practices, pest management, environmental and
regulatory challenges faced by the agricultural community in California.
Processing tomatoes, wine
grapes/winery, nut crops,
tree fruit and rice.
Growers, commodity organizations, cooperative extension personnel,
research scientists and local Agri-Business experts will make presentations
in a variety of agricultural settings. Field stops are planned in nut crops,
rice, tomatoes and a vineyard. The highly-regarded IR-4 Minor Use
Research Program at UC Davis will be featured and attendees will observe
the Port of Oakland, a major hub of international trade.
The intense one-day tour will be fast-paced with moderate levels of
walking during a typically warm day in the East Bay and San Joaquin
Valley. Please prepare accordingly and remember to pack comfortable
clothing, walking shoes and a hat.
Organized by:
$85.00 USD (includes
lunch, refreshments and
Tour sign-up via meeting

The agricultural tour event
will accommodate up to
100 participants drawn from
attendees at the conference,
their spouses and guests.
World Crop Protection Chemistry Leadership Institute
An Interactive Workshop
Developing Global Leaders for Research, Regulation and
Stewardship of Crop Protection Chemistry in the 21st Century
The Challenge
Workshop Style
The protection of crops based on chemistry continues
to increase in sophistication, together with the
globalization of the chemical, seed, and food trade. At
the same time, societal expectations for stewardship,
human safety, environmental protection, and
agricultural sustainability with respect to use of crop
protection chemistry tools are also increasing.
The workshop will include a number of short
presentations during the morning session focused on
identifying crop protection chemistry megatrends
requiring the greatest attention and examining the
current state of crop protection chemistry leadership
development efforts.
These trends pose a unique array of challenges for
research and regulatory leaders. It is essential that the
next generation of leaders is trained to take into
account the often divergent demands that are
presented in ensuring a sufficient supply of food and
fiber products to meet world needs.
Perspectives will be shared by noteworthy experts from
diverse countries and organizational affiliations. The
afternoon will include several breakout discussion
sessions designed to capture ideas and proposals for
how current deficiencies and future challenges for crop
protection chemistry leadership development may best
be addressed.
Workshop Objectives
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together global
crop protection chemistry leadership from academia,
industry, government and NGO’s to:
Sunday, August 10, 2014, 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
• Examine the current state of affairs with respect to
research, regulatory and stewardship leadership
• Discuss unmet needs and future changes in crop
protection chemistry that will challenge current
• Develop a set of specific recommendations for
ensuring that tomorrow’s crop protection chemistry
leaders have a well-rounded, science-based and
globally informed approach
