Join Dr. David Shaw as he presents highlights of CAST's new commentary followed by Q&A with a panel of the commentary's authors.
Technology is a key enabler of more efficient agricultural production as growers attempt to meet the cost-effective need for increased food, fiber, and bioenergy, while managing limited inputs, conserving valuable natural resources, and protecting environmental quality. Each new pest management technology (weed, insect, disease) developed brings a number of benefits and risks—environmental, health, resistance—that must be considered and managed through effective stewardship practices to ensure that benefits are fully realized while risks are minimized.

This CAST Commentary
  • Identifies and explores the stewardship challenges of new pest management technologies for both growers and technology developers, and
  • Provides recommendations to stakeholders, researchers, and growers to improve the stewardship of pest management technologies in agriculture.
