Society of Pesticide Science India (SPS India) was formed as a national Society on 25th September, 1987 with its Headquarters at the Division of Agricultural Chemicals, ICAR – Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI),
New Delhi and formally launched and inaugurated on November 16, 1989.
The objective of the society is to provide a forum to scientists for expressing critical views based on scientific knowledge and rational thinking on important national policies and programmes related to pesticides, allied
agrochemicals and related fields and to create aware-ness among masses on the role of pesticides and allied agrochemicals in agriculture, public health and human welfare.
About the Conference
The growing world population is estimated to reach 9.1 billion by the year 2050. This increased population density is projected to increase demand for food production by 70% in developing countries. The availability of additional agricultural land and resources are limited. The reduction of current yield losses caused by pests is a major challenge. Chemical pesticides will continue to play a role in pest management as more and more target specific and environment friendly products are being introduced.
The benefits of pesticide use are high relative to their risks. New concepts in crops, human health, resource management, nanotechnology, smart formulations and related sciences are likely to boost agricultural productivity. Current status of agrochemicals on various fronts will be collated for researchers and policy makers.
- Residues of pesticides in economically important crops (Basmati rice, tea, grapes, other fruits and vegetables
- Analytical method for determination of agrochemicals (GC-MS/MS; LC-MS/MS)
- Measurement of uncertainty in pesticide residue analysis
- Pesticide toxicity in non-target organisms
- Food processing and pesticide residue
- Matrix effect in residue analysis
- Dynamics of newer pesticides in the environment (Leaching, degradation)
- Dynamics of agrochemicals in aquatic environment
- Pesticide residues in animal feed
- Decontamination of pesticide residues
- Degradation of agrochemicals by microbes
- Researches on emerging contaminants
