EPPO activities on plant protection products


Workshop on application technology in plant protection
Braunschweig, DE, 1995-04-04/06
One of the aims of EPPO is to promote the use of modern, safe and effective pest control methods. In order to achieve this goal, the EPPO Working Party on Plant Protection Products has produced a large number of standards which are intended to be used by National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs), in their capacity as authorities responsible for registration of plant protection products and related advisory services. Some of these standards may also be of interest to agrochemical companies which apply for registration of their products. In addition to the development of standards, EPPO regularly organizes Conferences and Workshops on themes related to plant protection (e.g. application techniques, forecasting models, computer applications in plant protection).
