Joint IOBC-WPRS Meeting of the Working Group
“Integrated Protection in Viticulture”
Vila Real, 5 - 8 November 2019
Plant protection in viticulture is matter of discussion due to the undesirable effects of pesticide use on human health and the environment. EU has launched various measures to reduce negative impacts of intensive management practices and to promote the transition towards more ecologically-based pest management methods. Research in this field is producing excellent results but their translation into the practice is still challenging.
We are pleased to invite you to the Conference of the IOBC/WPRS Working Group that will take place at Vila Real, Portugal. This international conference (5 – 8 November 2019) aims to bring together scientists, researchers, students and consultants working on biological control and integrated protection in viticulture.
We invite participants to attend this conference and to present their latest research results. We look forward to seeing you in Vila Real,
