First Announcement

Vineland, May 12, 2016

Dear colleagues,

We are very happy to announce that the next meeting of the IOBC-WPRS working group “Integrated Control in Protected Crops, Temperate Climate” will take place from 04-08 June 2017 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. The meeting will be co-organized with IOBC-NRS.

We aim for a meeting with high quality talks on all aspects of integrated pest control in greenhouse and protected crops, from theory to practice. Like last meeting, we will have a Grower Interaction Session and a choice of excursions to some of the most progressive commercial greenhouse operations in the region. There will be ample room for discussion and interaction with representatives from academia and industry while enjoying everything the Niagara region has to offer.

The location in Niagara Falls, Canada aims to increase the exchange of knowledge between colleagues from WPRS and NRS regions. It also gives the opportunity to visit greenhouse horticulture and research in one of Canada’s main greenhouse production areas where biocontrol is the major pest control strategy.
