COVID Announcement

IOBC-WPRS Working Group

"Integrated Control in Oilseed Crops" ICOC

Rennes (France) September 29 - October 1 2020

postponed to 2021

Dear colleagues,
Due to the COVID-19 epidemics we have decided to move the biannual meeting of the Working Group ‘Integrated Control in Oilseed Crops’ (WG ICOC) of the IOBC WPRS from week 40 this year to the same period next year (end September-beginning October 2021, probably week 39, to be confirmed). We hope by then the vaccine will be available, borders will open, institutions will allow duty travels and it will be safe to meet in person! The venue is the same; the University of Rennes1 in France still opens their gates for us.

The meeting will still be followed by the International Clubroot Workshop. Please keep the date! We are all wishing you good health and as much success and good results as possible under the circumstances that we have.


Dear colleagues,
We are happy to announce that the next meeting of the ICOC Working Group will be held at INRA Rennes, Institute for Genetics, Environment and Plant Protection, Rennes, France.

In this meeting we will present and discuss recent advances in pathology and entomology research towards improved crop protection in oilseed production, with a focus on oilseed rape.
Topics include:

This will be an informal and lively meeting with an emphasis on discussion and will include sessions leading towards grant applications for EU projects.
Please circulate this information among colleagues
