Biopesticides Europe 2024

Date: 5th June 2024 - 6th June 2024 Location: Barcelona - Spain

Biopesticides represent a revolution in pest management. Unlike traditional chemical pesticides, these natural alternatives harness the power of biology such as plants, animals, bacteria, and fungi to protect crops, safeguard ecosystems, and ensure a healthier future. In the ever-evolving landscape of agriculture and pest management biopesticides are a transformative solution in biocontrol of crops. This innovative alternative is redefining the way we protect our crops, ensuring sustainable agriculture practices, and minimising the ecological footprint of pest control.

ACI’s Biopesticides Europe 2024 conference will be taking place on the 5th & 6th of June 2024 in Barcelona, Spain. The two-day event will bring together industry leaders, researchers, innovators, and stakeholders from around the world and aims to explore the exciting advancements, challenges, and opportunities shaping the Biopesticide industry.
