Online GPE course: How to actively prevent pests

Online GPE course: How to actively prevent pests

Plant Empowerment started its 10-part "The power of integrated solutions" online course in May last year. The series covered many common issues faced by growers around the world. The last online course on how to actively prevent pests will be hosted on Thursday, 17 February. 
During this course, Koppert’s plant health expert Mark van der Werf and co-author Jan Voogt will explain how to grow a crop that is optimally resilient to pests and diseases. The fact is that healthy and resilient plants are less attractive to pests and diseases. To achieve this, you essentially need good cooperation with bacteria and fungi, as well as good coordination with minerals.
