The meeting provided new information to producers and industry representatives on pesticide applications, laws and regulations, an integrated pest management update, and included speakers from the Texas Department of Agriculture as well as the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service. 

Jason Woodward, an extension specialist, told us they had more than 200 interested guests attend the event. 

"If we look at the role that chemicals play in agriculture, we're really trying to maximize profitability and to maintain stable production," Woodward said. "And keep things safe as well, yes."

The conference was promoting safe and effective uses of agriculture chemicals and preservation of the area's natural resources.
