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.Read more

There are a lot of myths and misinformation out there, and it seems to become increasingly problematic—that’s why CAST is so important, as it is a source of information that people can trust and rely on.
CAST is a very important organization with the distinction of being the united scientific objective voice for agriculture science and technology. This indeed is one of the most powerful positions to provide benefits to public policy and society at large. I am pleased to support CAST and have long been a big fan. Keep up the good work!
I believe where the interdisciplinary research intersects with policy, media, and real-world applications is truly where science moves the world forward. I believe CAST provides the unique opportunity to have these important conversations with interdisciplinary experts and establish the professional networks needed to develop my science communication skills even further.
