The working group of the International Organization for Biological Control (IOBC) on

Integrated Control in Oilseed Crops will bring together the latest advances in:

  • Identification of factors stimulating and limiting implementation of bio-based and integrated control of oilseed crops from research and development to commercialization and practical implementation
  • Development of strategies to improve implementation of integrated control with regard to genetic technology and its impact on the environment and the quality of agricultural products
  • Development of sustainable low-input oilseed crop production systems to minimize pesticides and fossil fuel usage and to maximize the exploitation of genetic resources
  • Focus on new strategies in research and development on integrated control of insect pests and pathogens in oilseeds
