Graduates 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.

The plant health management major 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.

Curriculum

Plant health management is an interdisciplinary major in the Departments of Plant Pathology and Entomology. The curriculum integrates several key disciplines, including fundamentals of biology and in-depth studies in horticulture; plant, weed and soil science; entomology (the study of insects); and plant pathology (the study of plant disease).

All students majoring in plant health management take a specified set of required courses in plant pathology, entomology, horticulture, plant physiology and weed science. Students choose additional courses (8–12 credit hours) from an approved list of electives in biochemistry, chemistry, biology, entomology, horticulture, microbiology, molecular genetics, plant pathology and soil science.

The curriculum also requires completion of a minor (12–15 credit hours). Students may select from over 100 minors at Ohio State, although common minors declared by plant health management majors include environmental science, sustainable agriculture, agribusiness, agronomy, landscape design and management, turfgrass management, and food safety.

Flexibility in the curriculum allows students to pursue interests in commodities such as agronomic crops, turfgrass and ornamentals, fruits, vegetables, or forests and natural ecosystems.

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.
