Chemical products from nature have been used to control insect and microbial pests since the early beginnings of agriculture. Since these primitive years, natural products have played a direct role in controlling weeds, insects, plant pathogens, and nematodes. Topics of this AGRO (Agrochemicals Division) symposium at the 254th ACS meeting highlighted the use and importance of natural products as biorational pesticides as they relate to agricultural commodities.
Papers presented focused on the isolation of and applied use of natural products to agricultural systems, comprising topics such as: host plant volatiles as attractants of herbivorous insects; synthetic formulations of semiochemicals as insect monitoring tools; sensitive collection techniques for in situ
or in-field analyses of plant volatiles; plant-insect, plant-microbe interactions that influence insect pests or beneficial insects; plant- or microbe-produced natural products that influence insects, pathogens, nematodes, or weeds; plant-plant interactions that influence plant defense systems; and, plant-incorporated protectants for crop pest management. Scientific experts presented original research results and review of important topics from a number of diverse disciplines, including,
analytical and environmental chemists, chemical ecologists, entomologists, and plant physiologists.

Beck (Ph.D., Colorado State University) is Research Leader for the Chemistry Research Unit in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), Center for Medical, Agricultural, and Veterinary Entomology (CMAVE) in Gainesville, FL. His research interests include the study of chemical communications between plants and insects. Over the last five years his interests have expanded to include microbial emissions and
their contributions to plant-insect interactions. He has authored or co-authored over 55 peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, and four patents. He is on the Editorial Advisory Board for Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry and Phytochemistry Letters.

Caitlin C. Rering (Ph.D., University of California, Davis) is a Research Chemist and postdoctoral fellow at the Chemistry Research Unit in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), Center for Medical, Agricultural and Veterinary Entomology

(CMAVE) in Gainesville, FL. Her research is on chemically-mediated interactions between the plants, the floral microbiome, and pollinators. Her Ph.D. research investigated pesticide toxicity and environmental fate. She is an active member of ACS AGRO, co-organizer of AGRO symposia and was a finalist for the ACS AGRO New Investigator Award in 2017.

Stephen O. Duke (Ph.D., Duke University) is Research Leader of the Natural Products Utilization Research Unit of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Oxford, Mississippi. His research is on discovery and development of natural product-based pest management products.
