Plant and Soil Microbiome relevance for crop protection

November 2, 2017, Akoesticum, Nieuwe Kazernelaan 2 - D 42,  6711JC Ede

This one-day symposium, organised by the Royal Netherlands Society of Plant Pathology (KNPV), dealt with the microbiome of plants and the soil in relation to plant diseases. The keynote address was be held by Gabriele Berg, professor at the Technical University of Graz, Austria. This was followed by two plenary scientific sessions in English, on Plants and on Soil. A third session on Practice involved four pitches presenting the viewpoint of four companies, followed by a lively debate.

This day took place at a unique location, the Akoesticum, in the old Maurits military building, close to railway station Ede-Wageningen. The KNPV was happy to welcome 15 new members.
