Our EuroXanth COST Action was presented by Prof Emilio Stefani (University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy) at the 1st International Symposium on Plant Bioprotection Sciences & Technologies (Plant BioProtech) in Reims, France.
The main goal of this symposium was to bring together the experience of worldwide scientists and industrials from different disciplines (plant-microbe interactions, plant physiology, molecular biology, pathology, etc …) whose activities focus on plant protection by beneficial microorganisms and natural elicitors. A more comprehensive and detailed knowledge on this strategic field for the agriculture of the 21st century was to be provided. Topics included:
- Elicitors and plant innate immunity
- Microbial sensing and induced resistance
- Biocontrol in greenhouse and field trials
- Industrial perspectives about biocontrol
Thank you very much, Emilio, for your talk in Reims!
