Our Bioprotection staff

Bioprotection is a growing area of interest for Plant & Food Research and its clients. Markets and consumers are increasingly demanding produce that is free of pest and disease but also has minimal pesticide residues. To balance this equation, our scientists are finding new ways to manage pests and diseases in the orchard and postharvest environment while optimising chemical use.

Meet a few of our team and find out more about their research and experiences in the bioprotection field.
