About PPS Nepal
Plant Protection Society Nepal (PPS Nepal)
With an objective to bring in a common forum for all the Plant Protectionists (the professionals, policy makers, researchers, academicians, technical staffs and businessmen related to this field), Plant Protection Society Nepal (in abbreviation PPS Nepal) was officially established on 13th March 2002 (As of 14/12/2059). Initially, this initiative was taken by the pioneering plant protection professionals actively engaged in the plant protection disciplines of the Department of Agriculture under the Ministry of Agriculture and Co-operatives. Later on this society enlarged with its increasing number of plant protection professionals involved in other organizations such as research, academic, I/NGOs with its hundreds of active members. Being a professional society, the primary mottos are to bring all the plant protection stakeholders in a common platform for the constructive engagements so as to contribute the nation through different creative activities. This society is non-aligned to any of the political, racial, ethnical, regional, ideological bases rather intends to integrate all kinds of ideas which could be shared from young as well as pioneering plant protection professionals so that, contribution could be made for the betterment of the agrarian community as well as to the nation as a whole. In fact, this society is professionally loyal to the plant protection discipline so that new and new ideas and issues of plant protection areas can be shared through different functions like seminars, workshop, conference, talk program, idea sharing meetings in relevant forums. It publishes Plant Protection Journal regularly along with some occasional papers. Ever since of its establishment, the society has received warm patron- ship and caring support from the experienced plant protection professionals active in agricultural development, research and teaching.
