About

The Plant Health Management major from The Ohio State University is an excellent choice for students interested in becoming practitioners of plant health: crop advisers, Extension educators, growers, agriculture consultants, production managers, inspectors, diagnosticians, regulatory professionals, and landscape and turf managers.

Overview

Graduates of the Plant Health Management major from The Ohio State University with expertise in plant health management are essential to address some of the greatest challenges to food security and the environment: pests, diseases and weeds. The world’s growing population needs a safe, nutritious and affordable food supply. Agricultural production must adapt to more sustainable and environmentally compatible methods. Invasive species, a problem exacerbated by international travel and trade, can devastate crops, forests and landscapes. 

Possible careers

Professionals trained in plant health management are needed to address issues pertaining to food security, agricultural chemicals, food safety, genetically modified crops, organic agriculture, renewable resources and biobased technologies.

Governmental agencies and private sector industries need highly trained professionals to tackle challenges specific to environmental protection, agricultural production, sales and service, and landscape management.

Plant production industries such as agronomic crops, ornamentals and landscape, turfgrass, fruits, and vegetables need broad expertise in plant health management.

All states employ extension agents and specialists to provide growers and plant health professionals with up-to-date plant health resources.
