The 9th Workshop on Sustainable Plant Protection Techniques in Fruit Growing (SUPROFRUIT) was arranged by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Alnarp, Sweden, September 12 – 14, 2007. Totally 89 experts from 18 different countries were gathered.

The workshops on Spray Application Techniques in Fruit Growing, organised since 1991, have always served as a platform for open discussions between researchers, manufacturers, as well as policy-makers involved in fruit growing, crop protection, application technology and environmental issues.

This workshop included 34 oral presentations and 12 posters showing how the latest development in technology and methods may increase the precision in application and reduce the risks of pesticide use.
