Technical Abstract: This introductory paper provides an overview of Perspectives papers written by plenary speakers from the 13th IUPAC International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry held in San Francisco, CA in August, 2014. This group of papers emphasizes some of the emerging issues and challenges at the forefront of agricultural research: sustainability; agriculture’s response to climate change and population growth; pollinator health and risk assessment; and global food production and food security. In addition, as part of the Congress, a workshop on “Developing Global Leaders for Research, Regulation, and Stewardship of Crop Protection Chemistry in the 21st Century” identified specific recommendations to attract the best scientists to agricultural science, to provide opportunities to study and conduct research on crop protection topics, and to improve science communication skills.
