The role of plant health in sustainable food productionSymposium organised by BFH-HAFL (International Agriculture)
The International Year of Plant Health offers the opportunity to raise global awareness of the role of plant health in increasing food security. This symposium looks at plant health in a broad sense – touching on agronomic, economic and ecological aspects. The event aims to bring together interested people from all sectors to learn, network and exchange experiences and views on the topic. At the same time, it marks the retirement of Dr Urs Scheidegger, our long-time professor of tropical plant production and co-founder of International Agriculture at BFH-HAFL.
