Sustainable Plant Health

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Food production has tripled in the last forty years, but one billion people still go hungry every year. On average 30%
 of all food produced is wasted in the pathway from "field to fork". With the global human population set to rise from
 seven to over nine billion by 2050, we urgently need sustainable solutions that will allow us to increase the global food supply while preserving the integrity
 of agricultural and non-agricultural ecosystems.



Our trees and forests face new plant health threats which in turn threaten areas of great natural beauty and diversity, and affect both rural and urban landscapes. Our unique MSc
 Sustainable Plant Health will give you the opportunity to develop your understanding of the vital role of plant
 health, applying your skills by conducting laboratory and field studies.



This programme is primarily aimed at graduates wishing to pursue a career in plant protection in agriculture, horticulture, forestry or urban settings, and also careers in policy development and implementation, plant health inspection, academic and industrial research, consultancy and conservation management, and private industry.
