Dr Frances Gawthrop, our Director of Research & Devlopment and Dr Geoff Denton, our Plant Pathologist will be attending the annual meeting of POnTE ((Pest Organisms Threatening Europe) & XF-Actors. It is being held in Valencia from the 23rd-26th October and hosted by Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Agrarias (IVIA) Generalitat Valenciana.
It is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
The program has three main sessions with the following topics
- Pathogens of Forestry
- Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum (CaLsol)
- Xylella fasidiosa
The meeting will share the latest scientific results from study into the three topics above. Of the three CaLsol is of the most importance to us.
