Recent severe weather events and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report make it clear: agriculture will have to prepare for more droughts and heavy rain events. In wet years such as 2021, plant protection in organic perennial and speciality crops are a challenging task for farms, especially when it comes to copper minimisation. Nevertheless, the organic sector has been proactively engaged in a copper minimisation strategy for decades and is determined to continue to make progress in this area.

The 6th European Conference on Copper in Plant Protection will:

  • Discuss the development of copper use in plant protection;
  • Identify challenges which still need to be overcome by future research and development projects; and
  • Reflect on innovations which can support minimisation and how politics can support farms in the transformation

Bund Ökologische Lebensmittelwirtschaft (BÖLW), IFOAM Organics Europe and the Julius-Kühn-Institute are pleased to  invite stakeholders from research, industry, practice and politics to save 17-18 November in their planner.

We will release the programme and open registration in October.

A call for papers is already open if you wish to present the results of your own studies or practical trials. To register contributions, please send an informal e-mail with the topic and title of the contribution to mering@boelw.de by 30 September 2021.
