AgChem Summit 2015: Pollinators and Pesticides; December 1-2 in Arlington, VA
Eurofins Agroscience Services, Inc.,is pleased to announce that they will be participating in the1st edition of AgChem Summit 2015: Pollinators and Pesticides organized by Smithers Viscient. Held December 1-2 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington Virginia, this year's conference will focus on striking a balance between pollinators and pesticides.
Marcus Hill, Research Scientist and Apiculturist at Eurofins Agroscience Services, Inc., will be on hand to present a session titled "Bridging the Gap Between Beekeeping and Ecotoxicology." During his presentation, Marcus Hill will share insights on honeybee physiology, queen bee and drone viability, pest and disease management; hive economics, resource needs and allocation, division of labor, and the environment, as well as environmental effects on each of the aforementioned, and discuss the interplay in the overarching template and subjective application for beekeeping and study conduct. .
"I look forward to what is sure to be a stellar event. The speakers, with whom I am honored to share the stage, are all top-notch experts in the field and I am sure much will be learned by all who attend. I am eager to share my thoughts, research, and insights," says Marcus.
His abstract reads "As a craft, art, and agricultural pursuit, beekeeping presents many challenges necessitating both broad and subjective colony management practices. Understanding of honeybee physiology, queen bee and drone viability, pest and disease management; hive economics, resource needs and allocation, division of labor, and the environment and its effects on each of the aforementioned, all play their part in the overarching template and subjective application for beekeeping and each greatly impacts the course of a study. Studies, and their limitations, may present additional challenges and yield confounding, misleading, or specious results. Bridging the gap between beekeeping and honeybee ecotoxicology studies will help ensure the quality of the data."
In addition to Marcus discussing "Bridging the Gap Between Beekeeping and Ecotoxicology," this year's program will also feature close to 20 discussions and sessions focused on the agricultural chemical supply chain, the regulatory environment and next steps for the industry; bringing together 100+ of the foremost experts in the industry, academia and the government.
