Plant protection

Plant protection

Plant protection is the science and practice of managing pests, diseases and weeds that damage crops and other plants, and which can have a devastating effect on farmer livelihoods.

CABI is a leading expert in scientific publishing, research and information delivery for plant protection specialists. Our first abstract journal, covering international research in entomology, was published in 1913. This was followed by the development of other information resources covering microbiology, plant pathology, nematology, weeds and more recently, invasive species.

CABI’s range of authoritative information resources on plant protection, such as Crop Protection Compendium, covers all subjects in the area, from taxonomy to the biology, ecology, distribution and control of organisms.
