The Conference Aims and Objectives

The International Conference will provide insight into innovations and advances in Plant Protection, aiming to protect the plant resources from the invasion and infestation of insect pests, plant pathogens and weeds. The conference would provide a collection of innovative ideas and recent research undergone by students, academia and industrialists, world over. A pool of thought-provoking opportunities would enable networking and provide opportunities for collaborations and alliances on plant protection; stimulate and facilitate discussions and dialogues between stakeholders like scientists, researchers and practitioners including policy makers, business, civil society and farmers. 

 

Call for Contributions

Prospective authors are kindly encouraged to contribute and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters. Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Plant Protection are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. The conference solicits contributions of abstracts, papers and e-posters that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research materials.

 

Conference Proceedings

All submitted conference papers will be blind peer reviewed by three competent reviewers. The peer-reviewed conference proceedings will be published in a special issue of Agriculture Sciences Journal (ASJ) of MNS University of Agriculture, Multan and Applied Sciences and Business Economics (ASBE).
