After the success of its inaugural edition in Reims, France 2017, a new stimulating opportunity to meet and discuss the latest research results and innovations in the biocontrol of plant diseases, has become a reality.

The 2nd edition of the international symposium Plant BioProTech is coming soon. The event co-organized by Reims university, IAR-The French Bioeconomy Cluster and INRA Morocco will be held from November 19th to 22nd, 2019 in Marrakesh, Morocco.

The Plant BioProTech 2019 offers to researchers, students and industrials a great opportunity to share and exchange ideas and results in a welcoming and friendly environment.

By focusing on scientific, technical and political aspects related to the plant bioprotection in the context of climate change, the Plant BioProTech 2019 will impact not only the scientific community, but also the industry sector, in particular firms involved in the development, formulation and distribution of bioproducts (e.g.: elicitors, biocontrol agents, biostimulants).

Moreover, the Symposium will be an excellent opportunity to treat how politics may implement the current legislation and future regulation to support the industrial development of effective and safe bioproducts, to be used for the sustainable agriculture.

Attend this second edition of the Plant BioProTech to meet key players of the sector!
