Registration Open for Ag Innovations Conference

Early registration is available for the second Ag Innovations Conference: Microbial Control on Aug. 13, 2017 at The Great Hall at the University of California (UC), San Diego campus. This event is intended for growers, PCAs, and industry partners to provide an update on microbial control strategies and new products.


This one-day conference is organized in conjunction with the 50th Annual Meetings of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology (SIP) at UC San Diego, La Jolla. The objective of the second Ag Innovations Conference: Microbial Control is to bring applied microbial control research concepts from around the world to growers, PCAs, and agriculture and ornamental industry partners in Southern California.
