8th Symposium in Slovakia: Going local
Agriculture needs to change. Its contribution to the climate and biodiversity crisis cannot be neglected, and farmers do not get a sufficient income from their work.
To be part of the change you can join the 8th Symposium on Pesticides Reduction at the Slovakian Agriculture University in Nitra on 7 April. There, EU policies and regulations to on-field agronomic practices and alternative technologies will be discussed. Speakers will present solutions to effectively reduce pesticide use for an agricultural model which is safer both for environment and our health, and which can provide a more stable future for farmers.
For eight years, the Pesticide Action Network (PAN Europe), the International Biocontrol Manufacturers Association (IBMA) and the International Organisation for Biological Control (IOBC) have been organising symposia on pesticide reduction in Brussels. In 2020, their symposium is going local!
