Plant protection products (PPP) are strictly regulated within the European Union. The risk management and environmental assessment of PPPs, essential to produce compliant products, poses challenges across the entire plant protection industry.

The conference brings together representatives from regulatory and industry backgrounds, as well as political decision-makers to discuss the latest regulatory developments. It keeps track of scientific progress, advances in environmental fate and exposure as well as recent developments in risk assessment and risk mitigation.

A special highlight will be an excursion to the Forschungszentrum Jülich, where you have the chance to learn about state-of-the-art digital technologies for sustainable crop production.
