The IPPC brings together entomologists, plant pathologists, nematologists, weed scientists, chemists, agronomists, economists, plant breeders, technology transfer specialists and policy makers to discuss and communicate new discoveries in crop protection for sustainable crop production and food security. On behalf of the IPPC2019 organizing committee, ICRISAT and the Crop Protection Societies in India, we are pleased to invite you to participate in IPPC2019. The theme of the IPPC2019 is ‘Crop Protection to Outsmart Climate Change for Food Security & Environmental Conservation.’ The program of IPPC2019 is aimed at addressing the key issues in crop protection against the backdrop of climate change and mounting pressure on natural resources to meet the growing need for nutritious and safe food, conservation of biodiversity and creating opportunities for economic growth.
The IPPC2019 will provide a great opportunity to present, discuss and disseminate the recent advances in crop protection, and establish contact and collaboration between crop protection scientists from different parts of the world. The deliberations of IPPC2019 will include plenary speeches and concurrent sessions in different disciplines of crop protection to create an awareness of the exciting advances that have been realized in addressing the challenges of nutritional, environmental and societal sustainability through innovative science, partnerships and an enabling policy environment.
The organizing committee will make every effort to make “XIX International Plant Protection Congress” a memorable and professionally rewarding event. The venue of the IPPC2019 is the historic city of Hyderabad, and the hub of India’s modern IT industry, which will provide an appropriate setting and up-to-date technical facilities for the Congress. We look forward to your participation in the IPPC2019 to make it a grand success.
