The First International  CSPP /  IAPPS Symposium
New Management Strategies for Insects and Diseases of Rice
Beijing, China, Oct. 25-26, 2012
(The Second Announcement)
Rice, a staple food for over half of the worlds’ population is a key to food security, social stability and the economy.  Today, in many Asian and African countries, rice production is threatened by the shortage of arable land and water. In addition, insects and diseases are two major threats that cause severe yield losses in epidemic years. In the past two decades the frequent and improper application of chemicals, for insect and disease control, has caused the development of insect and pathogen resistance, affected farmers’ health, damaged the environment and reduced biodiversity. It is thus imperative that we review some of the critical issues concerning the development of more effective, sustainable, environmentally sound and socially acceptable strategies for insect and disease management.  In conjunction with the 2012 annual meeting of the China Society of Plant Protection (CSPP), CSPP and the International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS) is co-sponsoring the first international joint symposium to discuss the following topics:
Ø      Why are planthoppers such a serious problem in Asia now?
Ø      What ecological engineering approaches can play a role in rice insect management?
Ø      Is the host plant resistance (HPR) approach suitable for the management of rice insect pests?
Ø      Rapid insecticide resistance development - Where do we go from here?
Ø      Plantwise – New framework for integrating pest management.
Ø      What are the best integrated approaches to rice diseases when HPR is not effective?
Ø      What is the impact of abiotic stresses on rice disease development and epidemics?
Ø      How do we achieve durable resistance by using both major and minor resistance genes?
Ø      What is the effect of multilines and crop rotation for rice blast disease control?
Ø      What are the effective control methods for emerging RSV and RBSDV diseases?
Ø      What are the current status and potentials of bio-control approaches for rice diseases?
Ø      What is the role of epidemiology in plant disease forecasting and control?
Ø      What are some truly novel/out-of-the-box strategies for future durable resistance?
Ø      Can we achieve a strategic approach to future plant protection in rice that involves major stakeholders and achieves productive and resilient outcomes?
