May 12, 2022, 11:00AM - 12:30PM ET Synthetic chemical herbicides are considered by many to be essential for productive American agriculture. Many farmers rely on the widespread application of herbicides throughout the growing cycle of various crops in order to combat weeds. However, herbicide resistance is a growing problem that is becoming increasingly concerning. Herbicides with new modes of action have been slow to emerge, and some of the most widely applied herbicides today are nearing half a century in use. One current technique to combat resistance is to use mixtures of herbicides with different modes of action, however this is only a short-term solution. New classes of herbicides will be needed in the long term. Several barriers exist to the development and deployment of a new herbicide class, including: high development costs, the length of time needed to develop, test, and secure approval for a new class, as well as evolving weed resistance. This webinar, hosted by the Chemical Sciences Roundtable, will discuss the nature and magnitude of herbicide resistance and explore opportunities and directions needed to better control weeds in agriculture.

AGRO PROGRAMMING ACTIVITIES SPRING 2023 ACS MEETING IN INDIANAPOLIS MARch 27-29, 2023 After first meeting in the “Circle City” a decade ago, the ACS will be back in Indianapolis for the Spring National Meeting during March of 2023, and AGRO programming has been concentrated on Monday through Wednesday, March 27-29. The ACS Theme for the Indianapolis meeting is “Crossroads of Chemistry”, and you will find full details on the ACS Meetings & Expos website. Both registration and housing for the Indianapolis meeting are open via the ACS website. Typically, AGRO has targeted its programming activities for the Fall ACS National Meetings but, with Indy being right in the heart of the Midwest agriculture region and in close proximity to a number of highly active ag research organizations, AGRO decided it was opportune to develop programming for the Spring 2023 ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis. AGRO program activities for Indianapolis include technical symposia, a combined poster session, and a social networking event. We invite your participation in these technical and social activities for Indianapolis, which are outlined below. Click here for a program brochure summarizing AGRO activities for Indianapolis 2023 Click here for the Call for Papers for Indianapolis 2023 TECHNICAL Program Picogram Here! The AGRO technical program for Indianapolis will consist of 4 symposia and include around 100 presentations organized into 11 oral sessions and 1 combined poster session. All AGRO oral sessions will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Downtown Union Station, which is adjacent to the Convention Center. A summary schedule for the AGRO program is shown below along with short descriptions of the 4 symposia. Full program details may be found on the ACS website.

AGRO PROGRAMMING San Francisco August 13-17, 2023 Join us in the Golden State for an exciting AGRO program! The theme of the Fall meeting is Harnessing the Power of Data, an inspiring theme for AGRO to engage. While California might be seen as the home of Big Data analytics, we chemists and scientists involved in agriculture love data too! San Francisco is a fantastic location to present your research, collaborate with other scientists and will allow us to finally celebrate 50 years of AGRO! Details on the AGRO 50 and Beyond Anniversary Celebration are now available. The AGRO Technical Program is available on-line - ACCESS PROGRAM Please contact Aaron Gross, AGRO 2023 Program Chair, if you have any questions.
Wednesday, August 16, 5:00-8:00 pm Moscone Center, West Building Exhibit Hall Cost: Free for AGRO members and symposium presenters The highlight of the AGRO Division’s celebration of its 50th Anniversary at the Fall 2023 ACS meeting will be the AGRO 50 and Beyond Gala Reception.

Purchase your Tickets Now: From Research to Table: A Tour of California Agriculture Thursday, August 17, All Day Cost: $75 including lunch Chartered Bus will depart from Moscone Convention Center at 7:00 am and return between 5:00PM and 6:00PM. The exact location of the bus stop to be provided later. Lunch – We will enjoy a box luncheon at the Putah Creek Lodge on campus. A lunch speaker will provide a wrap-up of the morning’s activities. After lunch we will travel to the USDA Germplasm Repository and Experimental Orchard. Staff horticulturists will provide an overview of the repository’s gene bank, a walking tour of the orchard and viewing of their grape diversity collection. Table displays will illustrate the genetic diversity of the orchard and provide tasting opportunities. Afterwards, we will travel along agricultural fields with a stop to hear about pre- and post-harvest fungicides, and pre-plant fumigants. We will then visit a commercial prune grove which will be one of our last field stops. Return Trip – Our bus trip home will be highlighted by a presentation on the history and sustainability efforts of Gallo Winery. Founded in 1933 by brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo, E. & J. Gallo Winery is a family-owned company and global wine and spirits industry leader. The winery is known for its lasting commitment to sustainability and quality. Our last tour activity will be a toast to AGRO and California agriculture with a glass of bubbly graciously supplied by Gallo. Sparkling apple juice will also be available.
