The Field Excursion is not yet organized in detail but we are looking into the option to organize a hiking trip in the Engelberg mountain area (with two options in terms of difficulty level from moderate to moderate-challenging but also weather dependent). Another option will be to organize a visit to a Swiss-based biocontrol manufacturer or agro-industry representative. Costs: CHF 85 (which includes bus transfer or cable car ride, CABI or company tour guide as well as lunch or dinner package).

Lunches (30.00 CHF) and coffee breaks (15.00 CHF) can be booked and bought locally at registration.
