DescriptionAs of 1 January 2008 the research institutes of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) have been reorganized. The Federal Research Centre for Cultivated Plants, the Julius Kühn Institute (JKI) is both a federal authority and a research institute of the federal German government. Its main task is to lay the scientific groundwork for the functions and policy decisions of the ministry and hence to provide policy advice. The research areas must therefore correspond with the tasks and policy focuses of the government. The research covers everything concerning cultivated plants: plants genetics, plant nutrition, soil science, plant pathology and entomology as well as plant health. The Institute for Plant Protection in Horticulture and Forests is one of the 15 research institutes of JKI. The main fields of research are: diseases of domestic tree species and their control; guidelines on plant inspection; monitoring of newly introduced pest organisms; taxonomic registration of new pathogens; endophytic fungi in forest trees; plant protection methods; and the effects of plant protection products on the forest ecosystem.
