Conference Announcement

6th International Symposium on Adjuvants for Agrochemicals (ISAA 2001), 13-17 August 2001, Amsterdam, Netherlands

This symposium focuses on both tank-mix adjuvants and built-in adjuvants. It intends to attract researchers from academia and industry; pesticide manufacturers, formulators, and distributors; adjuvant and inert materials manufacturers; crop nutrient manufacturers; application technology specialists; and seed-coating specialists.

Objectives of the symposium are to:

  • identify progress in understanding mode of action of adjuvants when combined with agrochemicals (pesticides and nutrients)
  • stimulate intensive discussion among those involved in adjuvant research, development, application, and regulatory issues
  • offer a platform for agrochemical companies to exhibit new products or technologies
  • offer the right atmosphere for establishing new cooperation between scientists and users on a global basis
  • define future directions in adjuvant research, development, and application • identify factors that restrict utilization of adjuvant technology
  • set up a global communication structure in adjuvant research and development

Major adjuvant subject areas will include formulation technology, biological efficacy (of herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, growth regulators, macro- and micronutrients, and other agents), spray application technology, regulatory and registration aspects, mode of action in relation to wetting and foliar uptake, physical- chemical parameters for prediction of performance, physical properties in relation to foliar uptake, permeability of leaf and insect cuticles, translocation of active ingredients in plants, phytotoxicity, impact on emission, glyphosate adjuvants, adjuvants of natural origin, comparision of physical-chemical approaches in application of adjuvants (for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and agrochemicals), performance and weather conditions, effect on soil and water applications, degradability and its effect on viability of nontarget organisms, biological control agents, pesticide mixtures, cost/benefit ratios, use in nonagricultural areas, and impact of geneti cally modified crops on adjuvant use.
