Plant health in South Africa – threats to biosecurity, biodiversity and food security
Plant health is intrinsically linked to the survival of our planet and all that live on it. While plant health is a broad topic, it is imperative we understand the latest research and dynamics in the South African context. The NSTF Discussion Forum topics include detecting and controlling plant health problems, research into pests and pathogens, chemicals versus biological control, and the role of breeding and technology for resistance. There will also be discussion on government regulations for the importing of plants.
