Subject outline

This subject explores the current frontiers of research and development in the plant protection fields. Although largely technical, the subject also considers ethical, environmental and sociological aspects, particularly with regard to control techniques such as genetic engineering and beneficial organisms. Identification and assessment of disease and pest infestations will be considered. The approach used to develop sustainable pest management will involve integrating information on ecological principles, life and disease cycles and the influences of environmental conditions as well as integrating management techniques themselves. This subject will enable students to specialise in areas of particular interest.
