Description

The international year of plant health 2020 (IYPH)
It is estimated that up to 40 percent of food crops are lost to plant pests and diseases annually. This leaves millions of people without enough food to eat and seriously damages agriculture - the primary source of income for rural poor communities.
 
Furthermore, as international trade and travel expands exponentially, the risk that plant pests and diseases will spread into new areas has increased.

That is why the United Nations has declared the year 2020 the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). The purpose of IYPH 2020 is that we become aware of the global challenges we face in terms of plant health and the importance of protecting our crops against pests and diseases. This is how we can achieve sustainable agriculture guarantees our food security, stimulates economic development, reduces poverty and protects the environment.
