2016 CPDA Annual Adjuvants & Inerts Conference, hosted by the Council of Producers & Distributors of Agrotechnology (CPDA), will open on May 3-4 in Des Moines, Iowa. Over the years, the CPDA Annual Adjuvants & Inerts Conference has grown in stature and name recognition and is now widely regarded throughout all segments of the plant protection and production industry as the flagship educational and networking event designed to meet the critical informational needs of this segment of the agrochemicals industry. The CPDA Annual Adjuvants & Inerts Conference provides a unique forum for the exchange of information on the current challenges in agricultural production and the opportunities for innovation in agrotechnologies to meet these challenges. The program is geared toward manufacturers, importers, suppliers, and users of adjuvant and inert ingredient products. This year’s conference will focus on how companies are adapting their business models and strategic operations to remain competitive against a backdrop of falling commodity prices, global water shortages, increased domestic regulatory requirements, and the growing demand for access to more eco-friendly agrotechnology products and tools.
