The conference is designed to provide a common forum for the researchers to share their findings in bio-ecology of insect pests, host plant resistance, biological control, pesticides and insect resistance management on crucifer crops and integrated pest management. About 100 – 150 researchers worldwide are expected to participate and present research papers.
- Diamondback moth and other crucifer pests: The global challenge in a changing climate
- Biology, ecology and behavior of diamondback moth and other crucifer pests: What’s new?
- Insect plant interactions, host plant resistance and chemical ecology of crucifer pests and their natural enemies
- Insecticide resistance and management in crucifer pests: the on-going challenge
- Biological and non-chemical methods of management of crucifer pests (including organic agriculture)
- Genetic approaches to manage crucifer pests: transgenic plants, CRISPR, RNAi, and genetic pest management
- Constraints and opportunities to the sustained adoption of integrated pest management (IPM) for the management of DBM and other crucifer pests
