The workpackage of the EUCLID project dealing with the assessment of new methods in IPM has generated a lot of results during these last two years (WP2). Biological control techniques are various: it can use products extracted from plants but also insects (macro-biocontrol agents) or fungi and bacteria (micro-biocontrol agents).

The program of this technical event includes talks, workshops and posters to present the most recent results obtained by researchers of the Sustainable Plant Protection Program at IRTA to farmers, technicians and policy makers involved in plant protection.

The EU Commission, DG Sante, has recently published a report on the implementation of Member States' measures to achieve the sustainable use of pesticides under Directive 200971287EC.
