17th meeting of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group "Integrated Control in Oilseed Crops", 18-20 September 2018, University of Zagreb, Faculty of Agriculture, Zagreb, Croatia.

We kindly invite you to participate the 17th meeting of our WG that will be held at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Agriculture, Croatia from 18 to 20 September 2018. The scientific program is composed of talks presented at joint sessions as well as sessions focusing mainly on entomology and plant pathology. We believe that the meeting in Zagreb will stimulate further discussions about pests, pathogens and weeds that threaten oilseed crops, including new management strategies and methods of their control, with the special focus on biocontrol, genetic resistance, agricultural practices, pest and disease forecasting and novel tools, that have not been used by now.

Bengaluru, India.
Aims &
Topics
1st International Conference on Biological Control - ICBC2018, 27-29 September 2018, Bengaluru, India.Biological Control: Approaches and Applications
Globally, up to 30% of agricultural yields are damaged by pests and diseases despite chemical pesticide use. Biological control of insect pests and diseases is one of the major ecosystem services provided to agriculture worldwide. Natural enemies such as predators, parasitoids and pathogens play a major role in limiting damage from native and exotic pests. The main theme of the conference is to address issues related to various biological control approaches in the context of biodiversity, increased chemical pesticide pressure and climate change. Its emphasis would also be on the challenges faced by the researchers, farmers and other stakeholders in implementing biological control programs. The conference will include keynote addresses, plenary and oral presentations and poster sessions.
The conference would cover the following Sub Themes:
  • Biodiversity and Biosecurity
  • Conservation Strategies
  • Biotechnological Approaches in Biocontrol
  • Production and Utilization of Macrobials for Insect Pest Management
  • Production and Utilization of Microbials for Insect Pest and Disease Management
  • Biological Control Compatible Approaches
  • Biological Control of Invasive Pests and Weeds

Sentinel plantings for detecting alien, potentially damaging tree pests: state of the art 2018
, Sursee, Switzerland.
Aims &
Topics
Sentinel plantings for detecting alien, potentially damaging tree pests: state of the art 2018, 09-12 October 2018, Sursee, Switzerland.

Alien pests and pathogens of woody plants can have significant impact on biodiversity, the economy and ecosystem services. The number of such harmful organisms increases worldwide as a result of intercontinental movement of people and goods, and national plant protection organisations strive to prevent further introductions. One difficulty they face is the poor knowledge about new pests and pathogens.
Sentinel plantings are a relatively new tool for the detection, identification and risk assessment of potentially harmful species in the exporting country, allowing better prevention and management in the importing country. Recent research has indicated the value of sentinel plants and made suggestions for the design of sentinel plantings, identification of pests and pathogens, and the use of collected data. This conference will offer presentations about these developments, which will be of interest to researchers in the field of forest protection and plant protection organisations.
