EuroBlight, the European potato late blight network, will be staging a workshop in the French city of Arras in May 2010, with the objective of presenting and discussing recent results on integrated control for both late and early blight.
Two themes will be guiding the workshop: the implementation of the Framework Directive and in particular the introduction of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which will be compulsory across the European Union by 2014, and EuroBlight in a global perspective.
The event, which runs from May 3 to 6 and whose coordinators include several members of ENDURE’s potato case study team, will tackle the following specific topics:
Participants are asked to provide a contribution on these topics - either an oral presentation or a poster - and these will be published as one of Wageningen University and Research Centre’s PPO Special Report series.
Registration is possible after December 15 on the EuroBlight website.
