    Morning Session

  • 5th International Symposium of Biofumigation

    External Event

    9 September 2014 to 12 September 2014
    Harper Adams University

    The 5th International Symposium of Biofumigation takes place at a time when crop managers are seeking alternative strategies to reduce pesticide use. Research on biofumigation was initially driven by the need to counteract the phase out of the soil fumigant methyl bromide in accordance to the Montreal Protocol on ‘Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (Protocol)’ and the ‘Clean Air Act’ (CAA). Further losses in pesticides are highly likely under reformed EU pesticide legislation which is based on hazard, thereby eliminating active ingredients with high toxicity.
