The Meeting entitled “Natural products in pest management: Innovative approaches for increasing their use“ will held from 25 to 29 September 2018 at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center on the Como Lake, Italy.
The Meeting, proposed and organized by Dr. Maurizio Vurro (ISPA-CNR), Dr. Stephen Duke (USDA) and Prof. Antonio Evidente (University of Naples) will be sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Co-operative Research Programme: Biological Resource Management for Sustainable Agricultural Systems (CRP) of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
This conference will bring together a selected group of 22 experts having different backgrounds (molecular biology, genetics, new technologies, biochemistry, chemistry, plant physiology, host-parasite interactions, microbiology, regulatory aspects), who will give lectures covering the latest and most advanced research, followed by long periods of discussions. The group will discuss how the newest ideas, approaches, solutions, or methodologies coming from different fields of application may renew and increase interest in the field of natural compounds for pest management.
