The joint EPPO/IOBC/FAO/NEPPO symposium on management of Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae – EPPO A2 List) will be held on November 16-18, 2011 in Agadir, Morocco. The Symposium is organized in collaboration with IRAC (Insecticide Resistance Action Committee) and IBMA (International Biocontrol Manufacturers Association). The aim of this symposium is to provide a common forum for researchers, regulatory authorities, experts from extension services or advisory bodies, and the crop protection industry, to share their knowledge in pest biology, phytosanitary measures, control measures, particularly biological control and insecticide resistance; to identify gaps in knowledge and research needs in order to avoid duplication of work.
