Innovation in crop production for productivity and biodiversity conference papers


Innovation in crop production for productivity and biodiversity was held on 9 September 2009 at Syngenta, Jealott's Hill and was organised by SCI's BioResources Group.

The conference addressed the battle against pests, diseases and weeds which threaten crop yields. There was a focus on the development of resistance, by the effectiveness of materials available for control and the imperative to consider the impact of treatments on non-target organisms, the environment and biodiversity. Progress in both chemical- and biotechnology-based technology was also covered, concentrating on discovery companies whose R&D groups drive crop management forward, particularly at a time when increases in agricultural productivity are crucial to the global food supply.
