Plant protection research studies insect, disease, and weed pests that threaten our food supply and the environment.

Ongoing research efforts to develop disease-resistant plant varieties, to study insect pest behavior, and to understand the emergence of herbicide-resistant weeds contribute to the protection of our crop and ornamental production systems from potentially devastating epidemics and infestations.
