This event is for industry, academia, farmers, growers, government and funders involved in the Plants and Crops sector.

Tuesday, 9 June 2020 09:30 am – 12:30 pm
This event will be live streamed via webcast

The event will bring together a varied audience including industry, academia, farmers, growers, government and funders. We want to achieve an Agri-Tech Industry opinion around Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to drive compelling discussions during and after the event.

Here’s an overview of what to expect:

•  Scene-setting presentations including an overview of IPM approaches

•  Thoughts on the current agricultural landscape in the UK, how IPM is being used and future opportunities

•  A discussion around opportunities (e.g. funding) to support future work in this area

•  An interactive session to gather audience input on challenges and opportunities for IPM
