Plant Resistance Sustainability Symposium - October 2012
VEGEPOLYS is a partner of the International Symposium "Plant Resistance Sustainability" organised by INRA from 16 to 19 October 2012 in La Colle sur Loup (06).
The main challenge currently facing agricultural research i.e., to find efficient and sustainable ways to produce food for a growing population in a changing world, calls for extensive efforts and a cross-disciplinary approach. In this context, genetic resistance is a privileged approach to efficiently manage crop health with limited economic and environmental impacts. However pests evolve and/or emerge, so that one of the key issues for research at the crossroads of plant genetics and pathology, agronomy, population and landscape ecology, management sciences, economy, geography, and sociology among other disciplines, is the sustainable management of crop resistance to pests.
In this context, the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA), in the frame of its metaprogramme Sustainable Management of Crop Health (SMaCH), will organize an International Conference on the topic Plant Resistance Sustainability. This meeting will take place near Nice, in Southern France, next October 16-19, 2012.
The conference will include oral presentations (keynote speakers), short oral communications and poster presentations.
Participation of junior and senior researchers is expected and encouraged. The official language will be English.
