Healthy plants are important for crop production, for maintaining forest health, and for preserving natural and planted areas, natural ecosystems and biodiversity. Therefore various activities are carried out with the aim of ensuring the protection of plants against diseases and pests in agricultural, public and private areas and in forests. With the aim of early detection of diseases and pests, there is continuous monitoring of plant health in the territory of Slovenia provided in cooperation with authorised professional institutions and laboratories. The implementation of various preventive measures is ensured to prevent the introduction of plant diseases and pests and, if they occur, to prevent spread and apply control measures in Slovenia and in the European Union.
