Fighting plant disease

  • Plant pests and diseases are spreading around the world faster than ever before and their impact is predicted to become ever more severe as climate change affects the environment.

    Located in the RBGE Nursery, the new bio-secure facilities will provide a disease detection laboratory as well as a safe propagation environment for plants under threat from disease or extinction.

    The facility will support research into the growing number of pests and pathogens that attack our plants and damage the environment, commerce and gardens, helping our scientists find solutions to difficult environmental challenges.
