About this event

June 21st, 22nd, & 27th, 10:00am - 2:00pm EST

Antimicrobial use in agriculture has become a globally widespread practice, while the impact of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) on human, animal, and ecosystem health have become one of the most pressing global health threats. In particular, the use of fungicides in crop production is an area of great concern. This public workshop will explore the role of agricultural practices in AMR development and the implications for human health, with a focus on plant crop production, and consider potential mitigation strategies.

This workshop is funded by U.S. federal government agencies, private for-profit companies, and independent non-profit organizations.
