Why Attend

The global agrochemical market is projected to reach $266 billion by 2021. By attending the AgChem and Technology Congress you will gain the knowledge to develop your products and reach your share in this market.

Due to strict EU regulations and changing public perceptions there has been a shift in the demand for ‘green’ agriproducts.  Learn from key agrochemical companies as well as leading academics about how they are working to produce more sustainable crop protection products, including challenges they have overcome with their new formulations, application technologies and strategies.

The AgChem & Technology Europe Congress will provide a platform to address present challenges by focussing on:

  • The Discovery of novel approaches for developing new active ingredients.    
  • How surfactants and adjuvants can impact the performance of the active agri-products.
  • Developments in precision farming to tackle issues with crop protection delivery.
  • The incorporation of biologicals and overcoming the associated issues with stability.

With meeting time available during the networking breaks to facilitate new collaborations, this congress will provide you with all that you need to develop innovative products and be at the forefront of the future of crop protection.

Chris Urch

Head of Chemistry
Redag Crop Protection

I did my first degree at Cambridge reading natural sciences and chemistry.  I stayed at Cambridge to complete my PhD on organic synthesis with Professor Ian Fleming and then moved to the United States to undertake post-doctoral research, again on organic synthesis, with Professor Barry Trost.  On returning to this country I started work for ICI Agrochemicals where I remained for 16 years as it became Zeneca and eventually Syngenta.  During this time, I worked on both fungicide and insecticide research, principally sterol biosynthesis inhibitors and acetylcholine receptor agonists respective
