Welcome Letter

IV All-Russian Plant Protection Congress with international participation
“Phytosanitary technologies in ensuring independence and competitiveness of the agricultural sector of Russia”

All-Russian Institute of Plant Protection is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2019. Since the foundation of our Institute, many leaders of our nation, and ideologies changed, new technologies were introduced in agriculture, the intensity of land use transformed. However, the relevance of the plant protection research has always been extremely high and will remain so in the future.

Currently, the main mission of the Institute is providing the scientific background for the food security in Russia. In the Institute we undertake the research in almost all areas related to crop protection, which ranges from the fundamental biology to the development of measures, methods and systems of plant protection. We are proud to continue the work started by the founder of our Institute N.I. Vavilov and his associates.

The important component of our work is organizing the activities, where participants can share the achieved results, discuss them, inspire with new ideas and establish creative and business contacts. All-Russian congresses on plant protection have been held on the initiative of the VIZR in Saint Petersburg since 1995. The previous third Congress was held in December, 2013 and gathered nearly 200 specialists. According to our plans, the upcoming event should be more ambitious and eventful. On behalf of the organizing Committee, I invite you to take part in the Congress, which will be held on September 9-11, 2019!

The scientific program of the Congress covers all traditional areas of the research in the field of plant protection, and they are as follows: (1) monitoring of harmful and useful objects; (2) chemical, biological methods and integrated plant protection systems; (3) plant immunity; (4) agricultural biotechnology; (5) economy and agro engineering issues. We will have plenary and section presentations, as well as full poster session. For the first time the Congress will host an exhibition of the scientific laboratory equipment and products for plant protection, including biopesticides, chemical drugs, entomophages, and others. During the Congress, we will organize a special meeting on the biological control of the greenhouse pests, which will be attended by the scientists, farmers and manufacturers of natural and other plant protection products.

The Congress organizers will make every effort to form an interesting scientific and cultural program and to provide inspiring discussions and business networking!
