Plant Protection is also called botanical medicine, the program with traditional advantages in the field of life science, based on botany, animal science, microbiology, agricultural ecology, soil science, cultivation, weed science, information science, studies the regularity of the occurrence and development of harmful organisms and puts forward comprehensive control technology, the division includes plant pathology, agricultural entomology and pest control, pesticide. It is related to planting with obvious interdisciplinary characteristics.
