Plant Pathology 2023, the main annual meeting of the BSPP – The British Society for Plant Pathology.  The meeting will feature open sessions based on submitted abstracts as well as sessions organised by Rob Jackson, the RKS Wood Prize, PH Gregory Prize and J Colhoun Poster Prize. The meeting is being jointly organised with Association of Applied Biologists and will feature additional sessions on ‘Climate Change-induced patterns of plant pests and pathogens’ and ‘Technological solutions to combat climate change-induced biotic challenges’.

Recent developments of pesticide application technology are in the fields of precision spraying, precise targeting, variable rate application, spot spraying, and improved sprayer efficiency resulting in increased on-target spray deposit and biological efficacy.

Long-term experiments (LTEs) are valuable resources to assess the sustainability and resilience of agricultural practices and systems.
