European Conference on Copper in Plant Protection

Dynamic growth in organic acreage in many European countries means new challenges for farmers concerning plant health. To reflect on the current re-approval of copper compounds, to discuss innovative ways to keep plants healthy in organic and integrated plant protection, and to identify research and farm management options to further reduce the use of copper, IFOAM EU-Group, BÖLW and Julius Kühn-Institut invite you to take part at the event.

We would like to invite farmers and growers, scientists, regulators, agricultural advisers and other people working with or on copper in a context of plant protection to contribute to the conference programme. Contributions should be presented in English. A preliminary programme and more information concerning registration etc. will be published by the end of August.

If you should wish to contribute to our programme with an oral or poster presentation, please send an e-mail including the title of your presentation to mering [at] by August 15 2018.

Please find the detailed description of the call and the event  here (English/German). If you have any questions regarding the event contact: isabella.lang [at]
