The Conference brings together research scientists, consultants, extension workers and industrialists, involved in the safe storage of the world's durable food commodities such as grains, legumes, pulses, nuts, beverage crops and animal feedstuffs. The meeting will showcase work on the pests and diseases which may cause spoilage, adverse health effects and loss of the crop, and discuss new techniques aimed at safe, effective and environmentally friendly management of stored commodities. The objectives are to exchange information from widely differing agricultural and economic scenarios, ranging from farmer scale in the tropics to bulk scale in Australia, North America and Europe, and to devise solutions to storage problems that are most appropriate and cost effective.
The IWCSPP is steered by an International Permanent Committee and organised by a Local Organising Committee drawn, in the case of the 2002 Conference, from across the UK.
