The aim of the Institute of Phytopathology of Georgia (IPG) is to provide research, consultancy and expert diagnostic services for plant disease control, working with partners, academics and collaborators.
IPG’s research aims to develop ecologically safe disease control by accurate diagnosis, testing and recommending crop management practices.
Improving these researches by using modern molecular biology methods will develop a platform for food safety and biosecurity for the country.
IPG operates under authority of the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia. On basis of the memorandums signed in February 2010, the Institute closely cooperates with the Ministry of Agriculture and the National Service of Food Safety, Veterinary and Plant Protection of Georgia.
