The conference, which is the third in this series, will provide a major platform for the dissemination of recent developments in crop protection and production research and practice with a focus on dissemination to advisors and practitioners. Papers are likely to range in content from those with a high biological science focus, to those that report new options for chemical or non chemical control or address key practical issues for crop production, fertiliser, weed, pest and disease management in crops. Themes that are likely to feature throughout the sessions include:

• Understanding and responding to pesticide resistance

• Implications of the loss or potential loss of approval for key pesticide active ingredients

• The role of non-chemical measures to support and sustain pesticide control measures

•  Implications of the Water Framework Directive and NVZ designation for fertiliser management

• Optimising nitrogen management to reduce farm fertiliser billsOptimising the field management of pesticides

•  New active ingredients and their role in future crop protection systems

•  Impact of climate change and crop management on weeds, insects and diseases and their management

Sessions are likely to be arranged around the following topic areas:

• Regulatory, environmental, economic and consumer considerations for future crop protection

• Disease management in combinable crops

• Optimising nitrogen management for yield, quality and environmental protection goals

• Weed control in combinable crops

• Insect control in combinable crops

• Crop protection in root crops

• Crop protection in horticultural crops
