About New IPM Symposium

For the second year running, Swansea University has been chosen as the host for this prestigious event which focuses on new and developing innovative programmes in Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The symposium, led by the Natural Products BioHUB and IBMA, offers a unique opportunity for researchers, technologists and end users to hear from others working in the field and to exchange ideas. As human, animal, and plant health are inextricably interlinked with each other and the environment, ‘One Health‘ is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimise the health of people, animals and ecosystems. IPM programmes aim to reduce inputs of pesticides that are harmful to humans and the environment and thus contribute to the global ‘One Health‘ vision.

Events at New IPM: One Health

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is undergoing a rapid change as modern technologies, such as electronic sensors, robotic crop inspectors and drones, are becoming normalised in crop production both in protected and arable settings. Our event aims to recognise and disseminate exciting new methods and highlight the barriers to development and commercialisation.

What is IPM?

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an ecosystem-based approach to solving pest problems whilst minimising risks to people and the environment. Innovative examples using modern technologies include electronic sensors, robotic crop inspectors and low-energy lighting within the horticultural sector. This ‘high-tech approach’ is not just reserved for protected crops as drone technology, satellite imagery and nutrient mapping are changing the way arable and fruit tree farmers approach problems by providing an almost unlimited level of detailed information that is helping the grower in new and exciting ways.
