Important themes for the workshop in the Netherlands will be:
Integrated (IPM/ICM) control strategies exploiting knowledge of the host, the pathogens, and their interactions, for improved control strategies meeting the F2F requirements.
Breeding for host resistance: status, goals, current and future possibilities, obstacles and outlook.
Fungicide efficacy: resistance avoidance strategies and use of alternative products to sustainably control late blight and early blight.
Precision agriculture, monitoring and decision support - success stories, available tools, outlook, obstacles and how to tackle them.
Short reports from EuroBlight’s sister networks
How can a global view of host and pathogen information help to develop and promote IPM/ICM solutions for individual farmers?
