10th Meeting of the IOBC-WPRS WG “Integrated Protection of Olive Crops”

The meeting serves as a podium for knowledge exchange of scientific findings on a wide range of topics, related to integrated protection of olive crops such as innovative insect pest management or studies about the impact of global warming on olive crops.

The main aim of this meeting is to set up a forum enabling the exchange of information, strengthening the collaboration among people from academia, industry and farming with common interests in biological and integrated control of pests, diseases and weeds in olive crop.

The symposium will focus on new developments and technologies in all aspects of IPM and biological control of olive crops. Our goal is to gather scientists and stakeholders from around the globe and provide a unique opportunity to exchange information and to communicate research results on a wide range of topics, including but not restricted to:

  • Development of new methodologies for monitoring pests and diseases, and the crop itself
  • Biodiversity, conservation and sustainability of olive crops: effects on pest/diseases and conservation biological control strategies
  • Pest bio-ecology, biological control, biopesticides and bio stimulants
  • Challenges and opportunities of novel technological tools: nanotechnology, biotechnology, bioinformatics, remote sensing, big data and artificial intelligence in IPM
  • New advances in intensive and high-density olive plantations pest/disease management
  • Semiochemicals in the olive crop protection
  • Emerging pests and diseases
  • Effect of climate change on olive pests and diseases
  • Advances in breeding for resistance/tolerance to (a) biotic stresses affecting olive
  • The olive microbiome: challenges and opportunities
  • Improving soil health to enhance fitness, production and food quality of the olive holobiont
  • Natural enemies and biocontrol agents
  • Combined use of biological and chemical control in olive pest and disease management
