Plant health analysis focused on how to protect crops, fruits, vegetables, flowers, ornamentals and forests from harmful pests and diseases. Plants use good surveillance system to detect the pathogens before embarking on the task of producing cost-involving toxic chemicals or defense-related macromolecules such as proteins. Talking about the pre-formed structural barriers, all plant tissues contain them to limit pathogen attachment, invasion and infection.
Keeping plants free of pests and diseases has always been high on gardeners’ agendas. With the frequent appearance of novel diseases and pests from abroad, planning for healthy gardens has become even more urgent. The arrival of new pests and diseases in the UK is linked to the rise in the volume and diversity of plants being imported. Changes in climate, especially warmer winters, may also enable more pests and diseases to become established in our gardens.
