SLU Plant Protection Network

We promote and stimulate collaboration between researchers at SLU's different campuses, faculties and departments with the aim to strengthen SLU's profile in plant protection towards the outside world.

Plant protection for the future

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.

Joint Action Plant Health

SLU and the Swedish Board of Agriculture have proposed an initiative that will deliver need-based knowledge, competence and infrastructure to secure plant health in agriculture and horticulture.
