The Symposium will address several aspects of cropprotection and will include a plenary session with two invited papers:
Prof. dr. Bruce McDonald (ETH Zürich, Switzerland): "The evolution of plant pathogens in agricultural ecosystems"
Main research questionThe overall objective of OPTiSPRAY is to support farmers, contractors and advisors in choosing the optimal spray application technique according to crop (development), target organism, and type of plant protection product (PPP).
Optimal spray application of plant protection products
Main research questionIn the Pasture Protection project, we are determining which tree species and shrub plantings are most adequate as shelter for animals kept outdoors, and which, in addition to having a good effect on animal welfare, also score in terms of forage value, wind resistance and exposure to soil compaction.
Pasture protection: adequate shelter for animals kept outdoors
Maize crop residues crucial for carbon in the soil
The root biomass of maize contributes - relatively speaking - twice or even three times as much to the build-up of stable soil organic matter in the soil as the above-ground crop residues (maize straw) do.
