The 2022 Industry Technology Session will be held virtually on Thursday, July 21, 2022 via Zoom. The annual event gives companies the opportunity to present updates on products already in IR-4 research, as well as new technologies designed to assist specialty crop growers with their pest management needs.

The session is a precursor to the 2022 Food Use Workshop. Technologies discussed during the session will be eligible for IR-4 research in 2023.

Additional information, including registration, will be available in the coming months.
