Seminar 484 Biodiversity Based Integrated Pest Management in Field Crops

Background:

During the last decades there is an increased interest in Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is partly due to implementation of IPM in EU but there is also increased interest in the importance of biodiversity in agriculture and horticulture. The seminar will be organized together with the NOVA PhD course “Biodiversity Based Integrated Pest Management in Field Crops”. The seminar will cover general presentations on Integrated Pest Management in Europe by professor Per Kudsk, Denmark and examples of implementation of IPM and also include presentations on National Actions Plans for IPM and the role of biodiversity. The seminar will include presentations by invited speakers as well as project presentations from PhD students and also include submitted papers from participants. You are very welcome to submit abstracts in the area of Biodiversity Based Integrated Pest Management in Field Crops. This includes both agricultural crops as well as horticultural crops. We welcome also methods of forecasting pests and diseases.
