Organised by the British Onions team, the conference includes speakers Wayne Minninger (US), Tatyana Ivchenko (Ukraine), Hans Christoph Behr (Germany) and Professor Frank Adamicki (Poland).

They will be discussing international developments in plant breeding, control of bacterial diseases, alternatives to herbicides, production of synthetic pesticides and good storage practice.
