SLU Plant Protection Network
SLU Plant Protection Network is there to promote and stimulate collaboration between staff at SLU's different campuses, faculties and departments, and to strengthen SLU's profile in plant protection towards the outside world.
Plant protection is about protecting plants from diseases, pests, weather damage, weeds and invasive species. The subject area is of great economic importance for the agricultural, horticultural and forestry sectors. Plant protection includes plant health and research on measures that combat and prevent pests from spreading, as well as research on ecosystem services.
