The IPM Innovative Cycle involves inputs from four distinct yet interconnected sectors: Farmers/Agronomists, Academic Researchers, Industrial Researchers and Regulators. However practical experience suggests that there are unfortunate disconnects between these parts of cycle.
This event we will bring together participants from across the Innovation Cycle, each of whom are working towards the ultimate aim of developing novel modes of plant protection.
The annual AAB IPM and Biocontrol meeting has a strong reputation as providing an opportunity for early career professionals to present their research. We will maintain this focus whilst bringing together those involved in the IPM industry, government regulators and agronomists/ farmers who actually have the responsibility to maintain agricultural and horticultural productivity.
We are delighted to publish the provisional program for tthis evnt.
