2nd Invasive weed conference (London, 2016-12-22)

The Property Care Association’s second annual Invasive Weed Conference will take place in London on the 22nd of December 2016.  This year’s Invasive Weed Conference has been designed around the three following key themes: ‘risk, roots and research’. Session 1 (Risks): this session will look at the legal landscape around controlling and managing Invasive Non-Native Species. Session 2 (Roots): the second session will look in detail at practical aspects, including surveying and mapping and responding to the increasing problem of aquatic non-native species. Session 3 (Research): this final session will allow participants to hear about some of the latest thinking and findings on topics including biocontrol of non-native invasive species and optimising physiochemical Japanese knotweed control in the United Kingdom.
