At PHAB 2020, all plant health stakeholders – from researchers to policymakers and the private sector – will convene with the aim to share, discuss and promote both the latest findings on plant health problems as well as innovative solutions to them. Together, working towards a sustainable future for plant health.
Plants are the foundation for all life on earth and improving plant health is the key to feeding the growing global population as well as supporting economic development around the world. Plant health is facing a number of challenges, from plant pests and diseases, to poor soil health and water scarcity, which is why the UN has declared 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health in order to raise awareness of these issues.
Prof Marcel Dicke from Wageningen University & Research, together with Dr Ulli Kuhlmann from CABI will Chair the PHAB Conference 2020.
