INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE
PLANT PROTECTION SCIENCES
International Association for the
Plant Protection Sciences(IAPPS)
IAPPS - Promoting Global IPM
Plant pests ?insects, diseases, nematodes, weeds and vertebrates respect no borders and spread through plant and
animal migration, wind, water, and by human activity, including trade in plant products. Globally, losses due to pests are a major constraint to improved agricultural productivity. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) has gained increased attention as a means of reducing losses due to pests, minimizing reliance on chemical pest control, and therefore
fostering the long-term sustainability of agricultural systems. Today, concerns over bio-security and invasive species are global issues that require IPM attention in both industrialized and developing countries. The International
Association for the Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS) through its worldwide membership promotes the development and
utilization of IPM systems on the world's principal crops.
·Provide for the organization, management and oversight of the International Plant Protection Congresses (IPPCs) as international fora for integrating and disseminating
crop protection information and technology.
·Sponsor a plant protection journal that features
articles on integrated pest management research and
·Organize regional meetings through Regional Network
Centers to discuss collaborative research and extension
·Sponsor and promote symposia and workshops at national, regional and international IPM meetings.
·Establish eight regional networks each managed by a
Regional Network Coordinator.
·Solicit individual, affiliate, associate, and corporate
members of IAPPS as a means to enhance communication
among plant protection scientists.
·Promote the application of the IPM approach in research
and in the application of the plant protection sciences.
IAPPS promotes tomato IPM practices (Nueva Vizcaya,
15-18 October 2007,Glasgow,UK
Dr. Olof Ryberg of Malmo, Sweden at the First
International Plant Protection Congress held in Louvain,
Belgium in 1946,stated,"The world needs an international
organization for plant protection,not only to plan coming
congresses but to a much greater extent to take care of
the current work on international plant protection
questions."Fifty years later,as sponsor of the IPPCs held
every four years,IAPPS is striving to fill the role
envisaged by Dr.Ryberg.The IPPC is the only international
congress that embraces the totality of plant protection
through a systems approach to methodological integration
for maintaining pest populations below economic threshold
levels. The IPPC is the only international plant
protection organization that addresses all of the pests
(insects, weeds, diseases, nematodes and vertebrates) and
also includes the supporting sciences essential for
successful IPM programs (meteorology,sociology,economics,
ecology, agronomy, etc.). The BCPC and IAPPS are joint
sponsors of the 2007 Glasgow IPPC.
