IOBC Canada 2017 Meeting Ė Integrated Control in Protected Crops, Temperate Climate

International biological control industry gathers in Canada this year

The International Organization of Biological Control Western Palearctic Region (IOBC-WPR) invites you to join their next meeting that will be held June 4-8, 2017 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

The event organized by the Greenhouse IPM Working Group, welcomes, every three years, over 100 biocontrol researchers, industry representatives and greenhouse growers. It provides a unique forum for face-to-face meetings and the opportunity to discuss information on latest research, status of IPM in different countries and new biocontrol products.

The meeting, normally held in Europe, is taking place this year in Niagara Falls, Canada. It will showcase the status of IPM in our greenhouse industries and extensive research and extension programs that help advance the use of biological control in Canada.

Highlights of the meeting include:
  • four days of scientific discussions and presentations
  • bus tours of greenhouses using biological control
  • social program that allows further networking and information exchange among delegates
The meeting will also include a half-day grower session (the afternoon of June 7) that will focus on the practical implementation of biological control in commercial greenhouses. The registration fee for this session is $25 per person and includes lunch.

There is still time to submit an Abstract for presentation at the meeting.
