International Year of Plant Health

The Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) designated 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH) a momentous opportunity to celebrate the benefits of healthy plants.

Since then we have instigated a new annual National Plant Health Week to help raise awareness about plant health. By protecting plant health we are protecting the benefits plants provide to all of us, to wildlife, the environment and our economy.

There are lots of events and activities taking place throughout the year, find out how you can get involved and help look after our plants and trees.
