About Plant Protection Quarterly


Plant Protection Quarterly

Plant Protection Quarterly is an Australian journal with an international circulation that publishes original papers on all aspects of plant protection. Topics represented cover all aspects of the protection of economic plants from weeds, pests and diseases and include the protection and ecology of vegetation on public land such as roadsides, railways, national parks, gardens and reserves.

Subject areas

Plants can be affected both economically and environmentally by disease, insects, nematodes, predators, weeds, salinity and other factors; weeds are controlled and managed using herbicides, biological control agents, mechanical and integrated control techniques; plant biology, disease prediction, remote sensing and inventory techniques are all essential in understanding the behaviour of plants. These areas are all represented in this journal.

This Journal provides research scientists, field officers, agricultural advisers, pest controllers, chemical resellers, equipment manufactures and other people working in agriculture, horticulture, land management and allied areas with a source of current information and latest research results that are not readily obtained elsewhere.


Plant Protection Quarterly welcomes the submission of scientific papers, review articles and technical notes for peer review and publication. The journal publishes book reviews, conference reports and notices and letters to the editor.
