Plant Health Centre
International Year of Plant Health
To mark the UN’s International Year of Plant Health, we have launched a set of 5 Key Principles, which outline important steps to protect Scotland’s plant resources. We have put together an information booklet that details these principles and our Directorate have filmed a conversation to introduce the principles and furnish them with examples. During the UK Plant Health Week we brought these principles to life through a series of blogs or short YouTube videos, each highlighting the importance of plant health to some of Scotland’s iconic plant-based assets.

This project has expanded the PHC online Resource Bank for plant health threats to the Natural Environment sector in Scotland to include information sources for the remaining three sectors (Forestry, Agriculture and Horticulture). Information sources for Forestry, Agriculture and Horticulture were compiled and evaluated, and a Knowledge Bank relevant to each sector is now online at the PHC website, creating a comprehensive and unique signposting resource for plant health information with relevance to Scotland.
