Innovations in Crop Protection towards Sustainable Agriculture @ SCI
May 18 all-day

The rate of new crop protection product approvals has decreased in recent years, but the need for new solutions has never been higher. Pressure on existing products from resistance and regulatory requirements as well as the changing needs of growers and societal expectations, mean that we must increase the rate of innovation as we strive towards sustainable agriculture. This conference will highlight how advances in multiple areas including organic chemistry, machine learning and AI, small molecule design and target identification are changing discovery programmes in agrochemical research. The talks will showcase the approaches taken in both industry and academia to support the identification of new and novel crop protection solutions.

NEW IPM 2023 – One Health @ Swansea University
Sep 5 – Sep 7 all-day

NEW IPM 2023 – One Health – International Symposium and Networking Event

For the second year running, Swansea University has been chosen as the host for this prestigious event which focuses on new and developing innovative programmes in Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The symposium, led by the Natural Products BioHUB and IBMA, offers a unique opportunity for researchers, technologists and end users to hear from others working in the field and to exchange ideas. As human, animal, and plant health are inextricably interlinked with each other and the environment, ‘One Health‘ is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimise the health of people, animals and ecosystems. IPM programmes aim to reduce inputs of pesticides that are harmful to humans and the environment and thus contribute to the global ‘One Health‘ vision.

The BCPC Congress 2023 @ Cedar Court Hotel,
Nov 7 – Nov 8 all-day

Shaping the future of crop protection

The annual BCPC Congress will return to the Cedar Court Hotel, Harrogate on 7-8 November.

The event will deliver a programme of relevant, engaging presentations from influential industry and government representatives, academics and leading consultants.

The congress will open the first morning with a focus on global food security and securing green food chains. Throughout the morning, independent and commercial experts will look at the challenges of supplying a rapidly expanding UK and global population with safe, affordable and nutritious food through resilient food chains that minimise the impact on the wider environment.

After the plenary session, the programme will split into two streams for the afternoon:

  • Stream A will focus on Regulatory Affairs (chaired by Iain Watt, TSG Consulting)
  • Stream B will look at new approaches to crop protection, problems and opportunities (chaired by Henry Creissen, SRUC)

The second day of the congress will highlight some issues that are likely to impact on the use of pesticides in the UK, including an update on the National Action Plan for pesticides, the adoption of IPM, making space for nature, pesticides in water and the influence of farmer generated data.

The congress will conclude with an update from HSE Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) and an interactive workshop.

There will be an opportunity to engage with like-minded experts during the pre-event welcome drinks reception. Our exhibition area will again provide a lively and interesting networking space for all delegates and the BCPC Award will be presented during the second drinks reception after day one.
