Preethi is a Plant Mycologist at FERA. As a plant mycology diagnostician, her role in the plant clinic is to identify plant fungal pathogens accurately and rapidly with a focus on ornamental, horticultural plants/crops and tree samples submitted to the plant clinic. She implements her experience and knowledge in plant pathology to be able to deliver this service to UK-based businesses, international clients and government inspectors. Accurate, timely identification of fungal plant diseases is essential in assisting farmers and growers to protect and limit losses. The screening for and identification of quarantine listed organisms is vital in assisting in the prevention of introduction and spread of invasive pests and diseases within the UK hence contributing towards robust plant biosecurity in the UK.
