PESTICIDE USE-AND-RISK REDUCTION 

need for greener agriculture 
Performance of current high input agricultural systems relies on intensive production based on high fossil energy consumption and large-scale use of pesticides and fertilizers. Consumers demand healthier and safer food and citizens are increasingly expecting production systems to be more sustainable and to preserve the environment and biodiversity. One of the major future challenges for European agriculture is therefore the reduction of risks and impacts of pesticide use on human health and the environment by promoting the use of integrated pest management (IPM) and non-chemical alternative approaches or techniques to pesticides. In particular the Directive 2009/128/EC establishes a framework to achieve the sustainable use of pesticides and, by December 2012, Member States should be ready to communicate their National Action Plans. As a consequence several efforts are taken and a lot of resources are already devoted, either at National and European level, to improve IPM and develop alternatives to pesticides.

 

ADVANCED IPM SOLUTIONS IN EUROPE
a unique opportunity

The international conference on “Pesticide Use and Risk Reduction for future IPM in Europe” will be the largest event on the future of European agriculture and in the view of the adoption of the Directive 2009/128/EC. With its expected 1000 participants from Europe and all over the world, it will provide a unique opportunity to share regulatory, scientific, and technological information.
