The International Year of Plant Health offers the opportunity to raise global awareness on the role of plant health in increasing food security. Healthy plants are the basis for sustainable food production. At the Bern University of Applied Sciences, School of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences, the International Agriculture team has continuously worked on generating knowledge to promote plant health, bringing together scientists, policymakers, farmers and other stakeholders around the world.

The Symposium 'The role of plant health for sustainable food production' looks at plant health in a broad sense – touching on agronomic, economic and ecological aspects. The event aims to bring together interested people from all sectors to learn, network and exchange experiences and views on the topic.
