The Biopesticide Summit 2019 will focus on developing and introducing innovative and alternative biocontrol solutions that will help protect our food chain in a controlled but timely manner.
Despite significant growth in the biocontrol industry, major limitations with current biopesticide solutions are rarely discussed. There is an urgent need to develop novel products and application technologies to not only "fill the gaps" in the market due to pesticide removal but also to anticipate future requirements as pests and diseases are developing resistance to currently used chemical products. In additional, there is increasing consumer led retailer demand for growers to eradicate the use of chemical pesticides in crop production and to grow fruit and vegetables with reduced detectable residues.
BIOCONTROL 2019 will focus on the main scientific, technical and political aspects related to the management of the most serious bacterial plant diseases occurring worldwide. The Symposium was developed into 9 core sections, taking into proper account the most relevant topics, such as: the interactions between plants and microbiome, genetics and genomics, till to the production, safety and regulation of biopesticides to control of the most dangerous plant bacterial diseases and their vectors.
BIOCONTROL 2019 programme will also include 2 meetings related to relevant EU projects concerning several aspects of bacterial plant diseases (COST Action CA16107 EuroXanth, PONTE and XFactors).
The International Entomophagous Insects Conference – IEIC (originated from the merging of the International Entomophagous Insects Workshop and the European Parasitoid Workshop), has reached its 6th edition.
After Minneapolis (USA, 2009), Antibes (France, 2011), Orford (Canada, 2013), Torre del Mar (Spain, 2015), and Kyoto (Japan, 2017), this edition will take place in Perugia, Italy, from 9 to 13 September 2019.
The venue of the Conference is the ancient Monumental Complex of the San Pietro Abbey, which is the location of the DSA3 (Department of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences) of the University of Perugia. The Abbey is also a stunning concentration of art and history.
The Conference is structured into 6 sessions, with keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, coffee breaks and lunches. A social tour and gala dinner are also planned.
The purpose of Ecology of Aphidophaga conferences is to provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of research on the biology, ecology and behaviour of organisms contributing to mortality of aphids (Hemiptera: Aphididae). Acceptable topics include the following:
Biopesticides market is poised to witness significant gains with the escalating demand for healthy crop generation. The industry has been evolving at a rapid pace, which is quite evident from the growing consumer preferences for organic food and demand for eco-friendly crop protection pesticides.
A growing awareness of biopesticides' favourable features, including safety and efficiency, as well as stringent legislative requirements, are driving the biopesticides market.

The program of IPPC2019 is aimed at addressing the key issues in crop protection against the backdrop of climate change and mounting pressure on natural resources to meet the growing need for nutritious and safe food, conservation of biodiversity and creating opportunities for economic growth.
The IPPC2019 will provide a great opportunity to present, discuss and disseminate the recent advances in crop protection, and establish contact and collaboration between crop protection scientists from different parts of the world. The deliberations of IPPC2019 will include plenary speeches and concurrent sessions in different disciplines of crop protection to create an awareness of the exciting advances that have been realized in addressing the challenges of nutritional, environmental and societal sustainability through innovative science, partnerships and an enabling policy environment.
The Congress intends to promote knowledge exchange and international cooperation, and to enable further exchange of up-to-date scientific and technical information on plant protection in agriculture, forestry and landscaping among researchers, teachers, experts in extension and public services and business community. The Congress should contribute to identifying new approaches, tools and techniques to meet future needs and challenges facing the science of crop protection.
Main topics of the Congress are:
