European Association for Potato Research Pathogens and Pests Section Meeting
University of Neuchatel, Switzerland
Presentation by Ian Toth at the European Association for Potato Research Pathogens and Pests Section Meeting in Neuchatel, Switzerland
Reducing pesticide use while preserving potato productivity and profitability Control of potato pests and diseases in Europe is becoming increasingly difficult due to the reduction of available pesticides. However, this provides a challenge for the research community to find innovative strategies for controlling pests and diseases. Control methods are required with reduced pesticide applications or novel bio pesticides, designed for low impacts on human health and the environment. Several invited speakers will present these important topics in various perspectives
