“We were extremely encouraged by the strong support given in 2013 to our new model for the BCPC Congress, with its concentration on specific topics. Indeed, such was the interest on the theme of EU crop protection regulation, we decided early to continue this theme, given its importance as a driver of EU crop production and EU competitiveness in the global market,” said Dr. Colin Ruscoe, Chairman, BCPC.
This year the emphasis is on the impact of use of the Precautionary Principle on innovation in agricultural technologies needed to meet EU food needs. The full agenda includes often provocative addresses by world-leading experts, which will be stimulating and of benefit to delegates and their organisations.
As well as the interest in the EU regulatory theme of last year’s Congress there was an overwhelmingly positive response to the return of the event to Brighton, reviving the BCPC tradition of bringing together participants in the EU crop protection industry in this one annual, dedicated event.
The format of the Congress will combine presentations with debating opportunities, a lively and extended exhibition and plenty of opportunity for interaction with industry colleagues, customers and suppliers.
