ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

 The Northeastern Plant, Pest, and Soils Conference (NEPPSC) is organized in cooperation with the Northeastern Weed Science Society (NEWSS), the Northeast Branch of the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and the Soil Science Society of America (NE ASA-CSAA-SSSA), and the American Society of Horticultural Science-Northern Region (NR-ASHS). The goal of this meeting is to provide a venue to bring together people with interests in entomology, plant pathology, weed management, horticulture, agricultural systems, agronomy, and soil science to share ideas and the results of scientific studies and outreach programs. The members of the NEPPSC strive to enhance educational programs and the promotion of sound scientific solutions for our shared areas of interests in the Northeastern region of the United States of America, and provide an inviting setting for students to share their work and network with current and future peers.
