Hello! On behalf of the 36th Council, I welcome you. To those who are long-timers, I thank you for your continuing support, and to those newcomers, welcome again! Having been a member of this Society for many years, I can assure you that you have made a wise decision in joining our Society.
The Malaysian Plant Protection Society was established in 1976 aiming to serve as a platform to discuss and generate knowledge pertaining to plant protection in Malaysia, and to disseminate such knowledge effectively. Through meetings, seminars and publication like this newsletter, our society has a wide reach, bridging the very related but oft separated scientific, industrial, government and grassroots communities. The success of our commitment is reflected in the growing number and diversity of the Society’s members.
Going forward the Society aims to further consolidate its organization and contribution to the society through various activities planned from time to time. Last but not least, I hope we will meet in future MAPPS activities. Together, let’s grow MAPPS to its true potentials and be the flag-bearers of plant protection in Malaysia!
We are pleased to inform that the Asian-Pacific Weed Science Society (APWSS) and Malaysian Plant Protection Society (MAPPS) will organize the 27th Asian-Pacific Weed Science Society Conference 2019 (27th APWSS) which will be held from September 3-6, 2019 at the Riverside Majestic Hotel, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
Therefore, it is a great pleasure to invite you to participate in this conference. Carrying the theme “Weed Science for Sustainable Agriculture and Environment”, this conference will focus on developments in the science of weed management and discuss challenges faced by researchers, practitioners and consumers on problems related to weed management.
