International Symposium on Biocidal and Non-Biocidal Plants to improve Soil Health
Because of the increasing number of persons
infected with the corona virus COVID-19 in Switzerland and in Europe in
general, the BIOFUMIGATION 7 SYMPOSIUM has been postponed to spring 2021!
We are sad to take this decision, but for
the sake of a health of the participants and for a smooth organization of the
symposium, we had no other choice.
We are looking forward to meeting at the
Symposium next year.
With our best regards, the organizers.

Welcome to the Biofumigation 7 Symposium!
This international symposium is the seventh of its kind, with ONE important change: it includes research on allkinds of plants used to improve soil health, also such not being used for biofumigation.
The symposium aims to serve as a gathering point for researchers, advisers and breeders from around the world for the exchange of knowledge on the use of plants and plant-derived products to improve soil health.
The topic of the symposium is the use of plants or plant-derived products to improve soil-health-related biological, chemical and physical soil properties.
The aim is to stimulate knowledge exchange on this topic between researchers, advisers, educators and breeders from around the world.
Special emphasis is placed on the participation of young researchers, i.e. PhD and MSc students. To encourage their participation, the following three arrangements have been made:
