How the Secondary Effects of Pesticide Ingredients Impact Crop Yield

Tuesday, June 22nd, 1pm ET


Did you know that chlorpyrifos limits root development and greatly reduces the root size of a crop? Did you know that many herbicides function as chelation agents that limit nutrient availability? Each active ingredient can have secondary impacts on other living organisms that produce unintended consequences.

In our latest webinar, John Kempf and AEA’s Director of Education David Miller take an in-depth look at a few active ingredients found in pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. John and David will explain how these active ingredients impact non-target species and what can be done to mitigate the damage they may cause. Attendees will also hear from James Johnson, Vice President of Carzalia Valley Produce, as he describes how his relationship with pesticides has changed over the years.
