The “14th Mediterranean Phytopathological Union (MPU) Congress” will be organized together with the “International Society of Mycotoxicology (ISM) Congress” for the first time.
It is a great pleasure for the Local Organizing Committee to host this Joint International Congress in Istanbul between 25–29 August, 2014. We believe that the Joint International Congress will attract top scientists, decision and policy makers, high-tech companies, start-up companies, entrepreneurs, researchers and students from all around the region. Production of agricultural products, seed and seedling development, plant nutrition and genetics, genetically modified plants, contaminants of biological origin, pesticides and mycotoxins will be covered during the congress. Issues such as the methods and technology concerning the existence, monitoring and protection of these contaminants of biological and chemical origin alongside climate change and the impact of global warming on plant growth, storage and preservation of agricultural products will be addressed by national and international experts. The purpose of this Joint International Congress is to address global and regional issues related to production processes of agricultural products and to develop solution-based strategies. With your support and sharing as participants this Congress will contribute to science, world trade, world economy and public health.
As the International Congress Organizing Committee, we will be honored to welcome you to this important event in İstanbul.
