Crop Health

Around the world, plant pests and diseases have a huge impact on both global food security and our natural environment.

Crop Health

To help farmers, growers and the agricultural industry meet this challenge we need improved plant biosecurity to control new threats and better crop protection to manage existing ones. To be effective, we need innovative, integrated approaches, which must also be both environmentally and economically sustainable.
