Around the world, plant pests and diseases have a huge impact on both global food security and our natural environment.
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.
For more information on any of our plant biosecurity services, please get in touch.
Develop new sustainable pest and disease management solutions, particularly biopesticides, to mitigate emerging risks – including pesticide resistance and invasive pests.
Develop tools for understanding the behaviour and interaction of pathogens, microbes and chemicals in soil to improve soil health management.
Work with international partners to extend the reach of our crop health expertise for the benefit of emerging economies.
Provide capabilities as a plant and bee health reference laboratory for UK biosecurity.
Adopt interdisciplinary approaches and data integration to develop effective risk-management and decision-support systems.
