Bio-Protection Research Centre
The Bio-Protection Research Centre is finding innovative, natural and sustainable solutions to protect New Zealand’s land-based plant ecosystems from damage caused by pests, weeds and diseases.
Our aim is to provide the knowledge necessary for New Zealand’s plant-based primary production to flourish, while maintaining our pristine natural environment.
He whenua ora, he tangata ora (healthy land, healthy people).
