2024 Industry Technology Session

About the Event

The 2024 Industry Technology Session will be held virtually (via Zoom) on Thursday, July 18 from 11:30 a.m. to approximately 4:00 p.m. EDT (8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. PDT). This annual event allows companies to present updates on products already in IR-4 research, as well as new technologies designed to meet the pest management needs of specialty crop producers.

The Industry Technology Session is a precursor to the 2024 Food Use Workshop (details on this priority-setting meeting coming soon to our Events page). Technologies discussed during the session are eligible for IR-4 research in 2025. Find the presentations from the 2023 Industry Technology Session here.
