Immunochemistry in motion: Applications to agrochemicals
Winner of the 2013 Award for Innovation in Chemistry of Agriculture
Dr. Jeanette Van Emon of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Las Vegas, NV, USA
The US EPA became interested in immunoassays in the 1980s and undertook methods development and evaluation studies, as well as outreach and educational activities through several avenues including the Immunochemistry Summit Meeting series. This presentation will chronicle the journey of immunoassay from biomedical to agrochemical applications.
April 16, 2014 – 12:00-1:00PM Eastern Time (17:00 GMT)
Lois Rossi, Director, Registration Division, Office of Pesticide Programs, US Environmental Protection Agency
US EPA has been involved over the years with multiple initiatives supporting harmonization of regulations for pesticides registration and control. Feedback will be presented from a pilot project developed in cooperation with the Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR) for parallel review with OECD-Joint Registration Review. Sulfoxaflor is new insecticide that has applied for registration for use on multiple crops in different countries, based on a global registration package. Some details around the global joint-review and feedback from the pilot project developed with Codex process for setting MRLs will be presented.
May 14, 2014 – 12:00-1:00PM Eastern Time (17:00 GMT)
Dr. Peter Green, University of California, Davis, Air Quality Research Center, Davis, California
Air quality in non-urban areas is usually better than in large cities. However, contributions from agriculture can be significant and are still not fully understood. This talk will focus on the formation of ozone from sources such as pesticide solvents, animal feed, and composting. In addition, I will discuss trade-offs with other emissions such as greenhouse gases as well as groundwater impacts.
