The 31st Annual Meeting of the Tree Protection Co-operative Programme (TPCP) and DSI/NRF Centre of Excellence in Plant Health Biotechnology (CPHB)
The annual meeting of the Tree Protection Co-operative Programme (TPCP) and DSI-NRF Centre of Excellence in Plant Health Biotechnology (CPHB) has become one of the most important meetings relating to forest tree health in South Africa and globally. The 2020 TPCP/CPHB meeting will take place on 12 May. This event is open to staff of member companies of the TPCP and other stakeholders in the TPCP and CPHB. The CPHB Advisory Board meeting is scheduled for 11 May.
As has been the case in the past, the 31st annual meeting of the TPCP will focus on key issues relating to forest tree health in South Africa. Importantly, the meeting will again seek to provide feedback to forest industry and other stakeholders on programmes focused on dealing with threatening pest and disease problems following an integrated pest management approach. This year, we will again have the opportunity to learn from colleagues in other parts of the world and to 'benchmark' TPCP research internationally.
