Thinking Differently about Soil Borne Disease Management
November 10 @ 09:00 - 18:00
With increasing awareness of the importance of ‘soil health’ and pressure to reduce pesticide inputs and use alternatives, this conference aims to bring together a unique group with expertise in a range of disciplines to present and discuss ways to manage soil-borne diseases ‘outside of the current toolbox’.
The aim will be to consider how we should use novel and existing strategies both now and in the future. This would include all crops grown for food and fuel. Research and views around the impacts of rotations, chemistry, soil-health, biological control, the impact of microbiomes, suppressive soils, disease detection and associated technology and modelling would be welcomed.
The conference will address this in three sessions:
- Diagnostics and decisions
- Trade-offs and synergies between soil and disease management
- Integrated disease management
Abstract submission and registration available: £15-£80
Please note, due to Coronavirus outbreak, many of the conferences are either postponed or cancelled.
