Looking to highlight a product(s) in your portfolio that may not qualify for a Label Update presentation? New for 2022, we'd like to give industry the opportunity to showcase product(s) in an educational context.

The Product Profile session is 30-min educational presentations on a relevant pest management issue (specific disease(s) or pest(s)). Presenters are allowed to use their product brand names when presenting how to address pest or disease issues. (Must be eligible for DPR credit) Questions or More information


  • Educational presentation
  • This is not an expanded Label Update: 25 min of the presentation should be on pesticides and pest management, not just label changes
  • All other products must be referred to by Active Ingredient
  • Presentations on products must be eligible for full DPR credit: within the context of pest and/or crop uses; research results presented must be conducted within the last three years
  • While presenter may use their product brand name and isn’t confined to active ingredient, presenter must follow all remaining CAPCA speaker standards including no disparaging remarks about alternate products
