Meeting on insect-resistant plants March 21-24

BATON ROUGE, La. — Scientists studying plants’ resistance to insects will gather in Baton Rouge March 21-24 for the 16th biennial International Plant Resistance to Insects Workshop that will be held at the Lod and Carole Cook Conference Center and Hotel on the LSU campus in Baton Rouge.

“We will have scientists from at least 10 countries presenting results of their research,” said LSU AgCenter entomologist Michael Stout, who serves as co-chair of program arrangements for the workshop. “We encourage all involved with the field of Plant Resistance to consider attending this conference.”

The conference begins with registration at noon March 21 and proceeds with a plenary session and welcome reception that day. A variety of symposiums, panel discussions and other presentations will be offered March 22-24, and the workshop will conclude at noon March 24.

Among the topics to be covered include development of Russian wheat aphid resistant plant varieties in the United States, the role of plant resistance in biological weed control and a variety of others.
