Webinar

Crop Protection and Scenarios for the Future of Agriculture

This webinar is the first of a series. It will bring together European researchers working on the futures of agriculture, on crop health and crop protection. The webinar series program will provide the opportunity for presentations of scenarios for the future of agriculture at the national, European and global scales and discussions on underlying assumptions on crop protection.

This conference is organized as part of the program “Cultiver et Protéger Autrement” (Growing and protecting crops differently) which aims is to support research towards pesticide-free agriculture by  producing breakthrough in knowledge.

This webinar is the first of a series which will bring together European researchers working on the futures of agriculture on the one hand and on crop health and crop protection on the other hand. The webinar series program will provide the opportunity for presentations of scenarios for the future of agriculture at the national, European and global scales and discussions on underlying assumptions on crop protection.
