European scientific conference – Towards pesticide free agriculture
June 2 - June 3
On 2-3 June, a European scientific conference seminar will take place entitled: “Towards pesticide free agriculture: What research to meet the pesticides reduction objectives embedded in the European Green Deal?”
The event will take place in Dijon, France and is being organised by the French Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE) as part of the official French EU Presidency programme.
The event will bring together researchers and professionals from all over Europe to share and discuss the latest science advances bringing solutions to pave the way towards an agriculture with much less chemical pesticides and ultimately with none at all. It will combine plenary and parallel sessions with presentation of scientific work, discussions between researchers and professionals, field and infrastructure visits and a science-society meeting.
6 scientific fields will be covered during the plenary and parallel sessions:
• Cropping systems
• Genetics and breeding of new cultivars for new services
• Bio-inspired management of Crop Health
• Agrifood system transformation
• Towards pesticide free perennial crops
• Public policies for a transition towards pesticide-free agriculture
