I have sharepoint list with data and one of the columns contains date ... how can i programmatically retrieve the latest date, the field is a Date And Time type?


You need to order by the column (descending), then set the query's rowlimit to 1:

    <FieldRef Name="YourColumn" Ascending="FALSE" />

From here: SO: MAX query using CAML


You can use foreach loop against your list's date column and then compare it with datetime.now to get latest date.
