Our International Symposia

Plant Protection and Plant Health International

Science meets regulation

The symposium »Plant Protection and Plant Health International« (formerly known as "Plant Protection and Plant Health in Europe - PPPHE") is organised jointly  by the German Society for Plant Protection and Plant Health r.S. (DPG, www.phytomedizin.org) and the Julius Kühn-Institut (JKI, www.julius-kuehn.de). The symposium language is English.

Plant protection and plant health measures are most often regulated by EU regulation and directives or by national law. The symposium aims to discuss the scientific framework of regulations, standards and practices already in the developmental phase of new regulations in order to provide scientific advice to all interest holders involved in the process.



Modern Fungicides and Antifungal Compounds

For over 50 years the name "Reinhardsbrunn" has become famous in scientific circles for the Symposium series which draws together fungicide scientists from academia, research institutes and industry to present, listen to and discuss the latest research findings in this fast moving field.

Such research is a vital component in the quest to provide adequate control of the fungi that threaten the world's food supply and commodity products. Only by discovering new active molecules by synthetic chemistry or from natural sources and by understanding how they work and how best to use them, can we hope to maintain and improve the quality of life for the world's growing population.

The symposium is organised every third year by the German Society for Plant Protection and Plant Health r.S. together with the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg

The symposium language is English.
