IOBC-WPRS Working Group "Biological and Integrated Control of Plant Pathogens"

23/04/2018 to 26/04/2018
Lleida, Catalonia, Spain


The general goal is to promote cooperation between biocontrol scientists and to exchange expertise on biological control of plants diseases in the West Palaeartic Region in order to support the implementation of biological control strategies in agriculture. Organisation of annual workshops for scientists and extension people as well as (potential) producers and users of biocontrol products. These workshops focus on specific aspects of biocontrol of plant pathogens and also of particular groups of pathogens e.g. soilborne pathogens, above-ground pathogens (biotrophic/necrotrophic) or sclerotial pathogens, each of them differing ecologically and demanding specific control strategies.
