We are establishing new strategies for molecular plant breeding, novel approaches to biological control and new tools for enhancing resilience of ecosystems.
We are exploring the relationships between plants, pests and their biological control agents in order to develop and improve natural ways of protecting plants and improving ecosystems.
We are developing innovative tools and principles to study the dynamics of biological invasions and make predictions about future pest, pathogen or weed threats.
The Bio-Protection Research Centre is finding innovative, natural and sustainable solutions to protect New Zealand's plant-based, productive ecosystems from pests, diseases and weeds.
In this seminar, Prof Richard Falloon and Dr Ueli Merz will describe the impact of powdery scab, an important disease of potato, and describe methods used to manage this disease.
