Conference of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group on "Integrated Protection of Stored Products", Pisa, Italy
Aims &
Topics
Conference of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group on "Integrated Protection of Stored Products", 04.-06.09.2019 in Pisa, ItalyIntegrated Protection of Stored Products (IPSP) consolidates different methods of preventing damage caused by insects, mites, rodents, birds or fungi. The goal is to achieve necessary efficacy using ecofriendly methods and tools while resorting to chemical methods only upon ineffectiveness of used methods. Aside from current knowledge and advances in recent IPSP research results, presentations regarding promotion and implementation of IPSP in everyday practice will also be included at the Conference. Current trends in the protection of stored products and the provision of quality food and other products for the market calls for limited use of chemicals.
The scientific program of the Conference is organized in the following sessions:
  1. Methods of pest prevention during storage, transportation and handling of stored products
  2. Prevention of microflora infection and development of mycotoxins
  3. Physical, chemical and other techniques for stored product pest control
  4. Natural products
  5. Biological control of stored product pests
  6. Wood-boring, urban and museum pests
  7. Quarantine and regulatory issues
  8. Pest management in the food industry

Meeting of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group "Integrated Protection of Field Vegetables" at DoubleTree by Hilton, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK.
Aims &
Topics
Meeting of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group "Integrated Protection of Field Vegetables", 13-16 October 2019, at DoubleTree by Hilton, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK.The pests, pathogens and weeds infesting field vegetables are becoming increasingly difficult to manage due to the reducing availability of conventional pesticides, particularly for minor crops such as vegetables, and the very high quality standards set by retailers and consumers. For these and other reasons associated with pesticide use there is considerable interest in Europe and elsewhere in integrated approaches that minimise the use of pesticides without compromising marketable yield.
The aim of this meeting, hosted jointly by the IOBC-WPRS Working Group 'Integrated Protection of Field Vegetables' and the Association of Applied Biologists, is to provide crop protection specialists/practitioners with the opportunity to explore new approaches to crop protection, present the results of their recent research, and discuss ongoing research and issues that are of mutual interest and whose resolution may benefit from a multi-disciplinary approach.

The Symposium will be organised under the auspices of the International Organisation for Biological and Integrated Control (IOBC) by the Associação para o Desenvolvimento da Viticultura Duriense (ADVID).
Proposed Topics:
  1. Advances in knowledge and new solutions against diseases
    a) Pathogens - plant interactions
    b) Resistant varieties: strengths and weakness
    c) Inducing resistance through chemical or agro-technical means
    d) Pathogens – arthropods relationships
  2. New strategies in arthropod pest control
    a) Conservation biological control in viticulture
    b) Bio-ecology and management of invasive pests in viticulture
    c) Disruption in communication and pest control
  3. Sustainable management of soil and weeds
    a) Alternatives to herbicides
    b) Soil management strategies: implications for pest control
  4. IPM implementation and tools for sustainable viticulture
    a) New technologies and products aimed at reducing pesticide use
