Department of Plant Protection

The Department of Plant Protection was established in 1977 with the advent of Sindh Agriculture University, Tandojam, Pakistan. It is one of the most important disciplines of agriculture with a mission to develop and undertake educational and research programs that foster the creation and adoption of agricultural plant protection systems that are profitable, environmentally sound and sustainable. Through its qualified graduates, it plays a pivotal role in providing technical backstopping to agricultural research and extension systems. The department also imparts training / education in community IPM through the Farmer Field School (FFS) approach.  


The Department offers B.Sc. Agri. (Hons.) degree in Plant Protection. In addition, it has a very strong postgraduate program offering M.Sc. Agri. (Hons.) and Ph.D. degrees in Plant Protection. The academic programs are designed to equip the students with new techniques and principles of crop protection in order to improve crop management to be translated in a socially viable, competitive and profitable agriculture for the farmers. The practical trainings emphasize identification of agriculturally useful natural enemies (insects and micro-organisms) and mass production of biological control agents for field application. The department aims to introduce organic farming in order to rationalize the use of pesticides to conserve the environment, irrigation, soil and to minimize the health hazards.
