Plant Nematology *Subject to validation

Course Description

Harper Adams is the UK’s only provider of a postgraduate course in Plant Nematology. There is currently a shortage of expertise in this important topic, which is a key element in the effort to ensure global food security and mitigating the effects of climate change. By successfully completing this course you will develop a range of abilities that will prepare for an interesting and fulfilling career in an area with considerable opportunities.

Although food production has tripled in the last 40 years, approximately one billion people still go hungry, with an average of 30 per cent of all available food being wasted during production, processing and distribution. Crop losses through nematode infestations are an important component of these losses. To date, over 4100 species of nematodes have been recorded to be plant parasites and have been estimated to cause £73.4b annual losses to world crops.

The aim of the course is to provide students with specialised training in nematology.

The course will:
◾ prepare students for a career in nematology
◾ offer vocational training in the area of applied nematology
◾ prepare students for PhD studies

The course is intended to provide a detailed understanding of basic and applied nematology and the issues associated with current production systems and control strategies. The course is underpinned by an extensive programme of agri-environment research at Harper Adams and longstanding collaborations with research institutes and other organisations in the UK and overseas.
