About us

Our mission

We focus on fundamental research into natural, sustainable ways of protecting New Zealand from plant pests, diseases and weeds.

Our aim is to develop sustainable pest management solutions that will help New Zealand’s plant-based primary production to flourish, while maintaining our pristine natural environment.


We are a national Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) funded since 2003 by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC).  We are a virtual organisation with members in six partner institutes.?
