    15 papers address six areas:

    Regulatory Issues increasingly impact the formulation chemist's job. Papers address how implementation of the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) is proceeding and describe cooperative efforts between CPDA and EPA regarding the use of "inerts" in pesticide applications.

    Application and Spray Drift papers cover water based application and droplet formation, as well as physical measurements of the liquid's properties that impact the droplet formation.

    Methods papers address two new ASTM methods to characterize tank mix adjuvant functionality and a multi-purpose suspension in water test method developed by the German methods development group, DAPF.

    Efficacy presentations discuss factors influencing biological efficacy of pesticides.

    Safety and Toxicology papers explain the required toxicology data for EPA approval of a new pesticide formulation component for general use; and the production plant safety decision system.

    New/Improved Formulation Approaches are covered in six papers focusing primarily on how to develop better formulations with either the right components or the right process
