A difficult moth to manage

More than 70 researchers from around the world have gathered at World Vegetable Center headquarters in Shanhua, Taiwan to participate in the 8th International Conference on Management of the Diamondback Moth and Other Crucifer Insect Pests. Organized in conjunction with Cornell University, the conference is exploring how Plutella xylostella, a difficult-to-control lepidopteran pest, is responding to climate change. The conference runs from 4-8 March 2019.
