department of Crop Protection

The Department of Crop Protection conducts research on plant pathogens and pests of grapevine and horticultural crop plants both in the field and greenhouse as well as in the laboratory. Our research covers a variety of different disciplines and techniques in phytomedicine, with a focus on the development and optimization of plant protection strategies for eco-friendly viticulture and horticulture, the analysis of interactions between plants, pests and microorganisms or the molecular diagnosis and management of pathogens in different cultivation systems.
We also teach plant protection to bachelor students of viticulture & oenology and horticulture as well as to master students of horticultural science, oenology, Vinifera EuroMaster and Vitis-Vinum, resulting in a close and stimulating interaction between science and education.
