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.
