Plant BioProtech 2022
Plant BioProtech 2022 was a successful edition in Morroco with over 300 participants. Have a look at some numbers from our last event.
IOBC IR 2022
The conference was attended by about 115 scientists, working on fundamental and applied aspects of IR and IT, from 17 countries. It was the first time that entomologists, phytopathologists and plant physiologists met to discuss the reaction that herbivore arthropods and plant pathogens induce in attacked plants.
The congress was structured into three sessions:
- Cross-talk among herbivore- and pathogen-induced signal cascades
- Risks and benefits of induced resistance and induced tolerance
- General aspects of induced resistance and tolerance
A total of 36 oral contributions and 27 posters covering theses topics were presented. One evening, a workshop was organised with the title “Practical implication of induced resistance / induced tolerance into crop protection programmes: Were are we and were can we go?”
The concept of bringing together entomologists, phytopathologists, as well as plant physiologists proved to be very fruitful and the discussion with colleagues in other, but related, fields of research created many new ideas and laid ground for new links and co-operations.
The Working Group wishes supports exchange and discussion of results from applied and fundamental research of induced resistance (IR) and induced tolerance (IT), against diseases and insects. Thus, a better understanding of the general and causal processes involved as well as further utilisation of IR and IT for biological control should be achieved.
