Research collaboration with Australian plant biosecurity center set to secure food supplies, increase academic exchanges

Research collaboration with Australian plant biosecurity center set to secure food supplies, increase academic exchanges | Plant health | Scoop.it

Research collaboration between US (Kansas State University will be the only American university involved) and Australian plant biosecurity center.


Officials at Kansas State University and at Australia's leading plant pests research center are finalizing an agreement for a collaboration aimed at increasing agricultural security in both countries.

Once formalized, the six-year partnership will pair Kansas State University plant pathology and entomology experts with those from the Australian Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre, or CRC. The center is a consortium among several of Australia's leading governmental research institutions and universities. Through this partnership, researchers will study emerging plant diseases and insect pests that threaten American and Australian agricultural systems and develop new strategies and technologies to defend against them.
