UK Plant Health Conference

Defra hosted a UK Plant Health Conference in York attended by a wide range of plant health experts, including lots of plant health inspectors.

The event started with plant health updates from all regions of the UK, followed by an update on plans for the International Year of Plant Health 2020.  A series of presentations then followed on specific pest and diseases issues through to Biosecurity training and antimicrobial resistance. Good displays and plenty of discussions made this a very enjoyable and informative meeting.
