To promote a global conversation about plant health and the future of sustainable agriculture as part of the Innternational Year of Plant Health, CABI, Koppert Biological Systems and Wageningen University are organising a conference entitled Plant Health, Agriculture & Bioscience (PHAB 2020) which will be held on 9-11 September, 2020 in the Hague, the Netherlands.

PHAB 2020 brings together researchers in agriculture and the plant sciences, the crop protection industry and agri-business, as well as policy makers and public sector professionals who apply the research and products. Our aim is not only to link these three sectors, but also to bring together plant health and agricultural stakeholders from across the world in a truly global event.

There are four conference tracks covering a wide range of topics:

  1. Threats to plant health
  2. Plant health practices
  3. Plant health innovations
  4. The future of food

The United Nations have declared 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH), a once in a lifetime opportunity to raise global awareness on how protecting plant health can help end hunger, reduce poverty, protect the environment, and boost economic development.

PHAB 2020 is also working with Springer Nature to publish a special conference edition of the CABI Agriculture & Bioscience open access journal, comprised of papers presented at the conference. When submitting your paper, please indicate whether you would be interested in publishing it in the journal.

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 through September 11
