Webinar on smart crop protection in vegetables

AREFLH would like to invite you to the webinar “Smart Crop protection in vegetables” which will take place, on 19th of June 2023 from 10:00h to 12:00h CET, online.

A range of new Smart tools and technologies are being developed to help growers manage pests and diseases in vegetables crops. The H2020 Thematic Network SmartProtect has identified and reviewed the range that is available to European growers.

This webinar focuses on some of the tools and techniques which can be applied in vegetable crops and on approach which is under development at the University of Leuven.


After we have summarised the SmartProtect results there is an opportunity for you or your colleagues to present information related to this topic. If you are interested in presenting, please register here before June 5th. A timeslot has been included in the program for these additional presentations.
