SSAU was present with its own stand at CropTec Show 2018, a two-day show that took place at the East of England Showground, Peterborough on 28-29 November 2018. The CropTec Show offers the chance to explore a wide range of novel science and innovative technology in an informal atmosphere, creating the ideal forum for visitors, exhibitors and researchers to exchange ideas and experiences.
Dr. Clare Butler Ellis took part in the Workshop on protocols for measurement of emission of pesticides into the air in agriculture, hosted by the Institut national de recherche en sciences et technologies pour l'environnement et l'agriculture (IRSTEA), and that took place in Montpellier on 5-7 June 2018.
The workshop topic was to develop protocols for the measurements of the emission of pesticides into the air due to their agricultural use, and had a combination of formal presentations and plenary discussion sessions divided into two subtopics, emission during and emission after pesticide application.
This workshop is an essential part of a multi-partner project by INRA (Institut national de la recherche agronomique), IRSTEA and WUR (Wageningen University & Research) and funded by the French Agency of Environment. The results of the workshop will be posted on a project website (currently under construction).
Dr. Clare Butler Ellis has been awarded by the Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE) with the 2017 Douglas Bomford Paper Award.
Dr. Clare Butler Ellis has been awarded by the Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE) with the 2017 Douglas Bomford Paper Award for her contribution to the paper Probabilistic modelling for bystander and resident exposure to pesticides using Browse software.
The award recognises those authors whose work stands out for its originality and technical excellence, the demonstration of the authors’ authority in the subject material and its relevance to the current problems and needs of the industry among other criteria.

SSAU has received our new Evolution 201 UV/visible spectrophotometer with INSIGHT Software that will let us further improve our analytical capabilities.
SSAU are pleased to report that it has just modernised its analytical instrumentation by installing their new Evolution 201 UV/visible spectrophotometer with INSIGHT Software, autosampler and flow cell sipper. Thermo Fisher Scientific are recognised as one of the market leaders in spectrophotometry and their new R&D instrument has improved capabilities in:
Data capture and sample throughput.
Lamp durability, stability and sensitivity.
Faster optical scanning across the visible range (seconds not minutes).
Simpler method development and improved assessments of interferences.
Operate with a wider range of tracers and determine their compatibility in solution.
This cutting edge technology also offers further opportunities to expand on their capabilities in the future.
