Pesticide and Agricultural Plastics Stewardship 12th Annual Conference

WELCOME!

Welcome to Boise and the 12th Annual Conference of The Pesticide Stewardship Alliance. It’s great to have so many enthusiastic people from such diverse backgrounds gathered in one place with the same vision. TPSA is proud to facilitate such a gathering and very appreciative of its sponsors, who make this event possible through their generous financial contributions.

Attendees to the conference representing industry, academia, state and federal government are from all over the United States and several foreign countries.

Boise is known as the City of Trees. Boise possesses an independence and creative spirit not found in many other places. With its stunning scenery, abundant natural resources and year-round outdoor activities, it’s no surprise Boise consistently lands on national “best places” lists for families, businesses and recreation year after year. Boise is many things from urban to outdoorsy. It’s wild and relaxing, yet friendly and unforgettable.

We hope you enjoy your time in Boise. We are pleased with what we feel is a fantastic program put together by some very hard working people within TPSA.
