The priority of the programme is to improve plant health and crop production by developing innovative and low environmental impact control strategies. Main research lines are focused on the biology and epidemiology of pests and pathogens, the application of beneficial organisms able to achieve quality standards of agricultural and forest products and the sustainable management of agroecosystems through a well-balanced use of nutrients, water resources and biodiversity.
