The conference will provide a major platform for the dissemination of recent developments in crop protection research and practice. Papers are likely to range in content from those with a high biological science focus, to those that report new options for chemical or biological control or address key practical issues for 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
· sustainability of high outputs to meet growing demand for crops for food and non-food uses
· effects of changing weather patterns, and the potential longer term impact of climate change, on current and future weed, pest and disease threats to crop production in Southern Britain.
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
· Weed control in combinable crops
· Pest control in combinable crops
· Crop protection in root crops
· Crop protection in horticultural crops
