Mini Symposium

Occurrence, Fate, Transport and Biotransformation of Agrochemicals and other contaminants: Integration of Metabolomics with Exposomes.


 IUPAC International Conference on Agrochemicals Protecting Crops, Health and Natural Environment – Discovery and development of synthetic and natural products for health and pests management was held during 7-10 January, 2020, New Delhi, India. The conference was jointly organised by IPFT, ICAR, DCPC and SPSA. The conference provided a platform to scientists of different disciplines, industries and stakeholders to discuss latest trends and discoveries in the field of agrochemicals and phyto-medicines, deliberate on important issues of agricultural research, and present views as policy inputs to the planners, decision/opinion makers at various levels. 

The conference comprised of a number of plenary and keynote lectures by the world’s leading scientists, reviewing the principal theme areas of the conference. Besides new compounds, new concepts and newer uses, the conference covered other traditional areas of research such as pest diseases management, invasive pests, weed and resistance management, exploring biodiversity for botanical and bio-pesticides, genetically modified crops, nutraceuticals, as well as research on effect on human health, risk management, ecotoxicology, and remediation strategies. The conference attracted over 265 participants coming mainly from India but also from both developed and developing countries such as Japan, Sudan, USA Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Afghanistan, etc. and included around 150 young scientists.
