KABI Wake Up Call host john Anderson will visit with Author David Vail about his book Chemical Lands Tuesday morning at 8:;30. David will be the featured speaker during the noon hour Tuesday June 28 at (Lunch & Learn) open to the public · Hosted by Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum . A distinctly regional view of agricultural health evolved after World War II. Vail’s analysis reveals a particularly strong ethic in the North American grasslands where practitioners sought to understand and deploy insecticides and herbicides by designing local scientific experiments, engineering more precise aircraft sprayers, developing more narrowly specific chemicals, and planting targeted test crops. This study provides a unique grasslands perspective of the ag pilots, weed scientists and farmers who struggled to navigate novel technologies for spray planes and in the development of new herbicides/insecticides while striving to manage and mitigate threats to human health and the environment.
