The Biopesticide Summit & Awards will be held on 19-20 May 2020 at the NEC, Birmingham, UK


The Biopesticide Summit & Awards 2020 will bring together scientists, researchers, key industry stakeholders, government organizations, investors, policy makers and integrated pest management practitioners to discuss the challenges faced and the future opportunities. The summit will also provide insights from end-use markets giving updates on product performance in different sectors.

There is an urgent need to develop novel products and application technologies to not only “fill the gaps” in the market due to chemical pesticide removal, but also to combat resistance to currently used pesticides. In addition, there is increasing consumer led retailer demand for growers to reduce the use of chemical pesticides in crop production and to grow fruit and vegetables with reduced detectable residues. Despite significant growth in the biocontrol industry, major limitations with current biopesticide products are still apparent. Register to attend the Biopesticide Summit & Awards 2020 to be part of the solution!

The Summit is the annual meeting of the World BioProtection Forum.

The 2019 Biopesticides Summit & Awards was attended by more than 250 international experts from the private and public sectors, academia, regulatory bodies and policy makers.
