Plant Science

Everything you need to know about the evolution of plant science and its benefits to Australian agriculture.

Plant science is the study of any plant system using the scientific method, which is based on measurable evidence. Two ongoing areas of scientific innovation are: creating tools that protect crops from insects, weeds and diseases (Crop Protection); and developing stronger, healthier, more useful varieties of crops (Crop Biotechnology). Both help farmers grow healthy foods sustainably for Australians and for other countries around the world, driving economic growth in the process.
