On February 5 – 9, 2024, the Minor Use Foundation will bring together growers, regulators, researchers, and crop protection professionals in Madrid, Spain for the fourth Global Minor Use Summit (GMUS-4). The Summit will provide technical guidance and key information to minor use growers and other stakeholders grappling with increasingly complex issues surrounding pesticide regulation. Participants will engage in the discussion of global challenges and solutions. They will also have the opportunity to seek assistance with emerging issues affecting specialty crop production in their countries and lay the groundwork for future research collaborations.

COVID POLICY: By registering and attending the Global Minor Use Summit, you acknowledge that attendance and participation brings some risk of being exposed to or contracting illness, including but not limited to COVID-19, and you accept this risk.

While Spain has lifted all COVID-19-related entry restrictions, it is each traveler’s responsibility to ensure they meet requirements for entry to Spain (as well as entry/exit requirements for other countries they may travel through). See Spain’s official tourism website for practical advice on border requirements, money, security, health and more when traveling in Spain.

Global Minor Use Summit organizers are not responsible for costs associated with canceled flights, extended hotel stays, or any other expense incurred, such as those resulting from illness or injury. It is strongly recommended that travelers carry health insurance information in case medical assistance is needed.

Health and safety

Attendees should follow all health and safety guidelines and instructions from event staff:

  • Organizers do not plan to screen attendees and cannot guarantee the health of all attendees, nor do organizers undertake any responsibility for notifying attendees if another attendee subsequently tests positive for COVID.
  • Masks are optional, and will be available upon request.
  • Anyone who is experiencing any symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19 should not attend the event.


Online: We offer convenient online payment via credit or debit card or PayPal.

Via Invoice: Once we receive your registration, we will email you the information to pay via check and our bank details to transfer the registration fee. The full registration fee must be transferred into the Minor Use Foundation bank account in US Dollars. Bank transfer and receiving charges are to be paid by the sender and therefore must not be deducted from the registration fee. If the correct amount is not received, you will be asked to pay the balance in cash PLUS US$25.00 as an administration fee on the first day of event. Please note the Minor Use Foundation cannot accept checks drawn on banks outside the United States.
