1- About Our Department

In the Plant Protection Department, our students take theoretical courses for seven semesters and a workplace practice course for one semester, in accordance with the 7+1 system. Plant Protection Department; It is a discipline that covers all technical and legal measures aimed at combating harmful insects, diseases and weeds that cause problems in cultivated plants and agricultural products obtained from them and to minimize the damage that may arise from these factors. Plant Protection Department consists of 2 Departments, Entomology and Phytopathology. Entomology from these departments; General Entomology, Nematology and Acarology; Phytopathology is; Theoretical and applied training and researches are given in the study subjects of different sub-disciplines such as Mycology, Herbology, Virology and Bacteriology.


2- Why Should It Be Preferred?

In the face of the rapidly increasing world population, the importance of agriculture for the nutrition of the human population is increasing. For this purpose, it is necessary to make the right struggle against harmful insects, diseases and weeds that cause losses in agricultural production by using the most suitable and advanced methods. Sakarya province, located in the Marmara Region of our country, has the potential to grow a wide range of products thanks to its geographical location. In the province of Sakarya, where our faculty is located, plant protection applications can be made easily by using modern techniques, the agricultural production potential of the region is high, our faculty brings students and the private sector together with the +1 education system, and thanks to the education provided, the students are given the ability to produce rational and practical solutions to the problems encountered. It is aimed that the students of the Plant Protection Department of the Faculty of Agriculture of SUBU graduate as well-equipped Agricultural Engineers by following the constantly developing knowledge, technology and research.


3- Goal

The main purpose of our department is; Agricultural sector, which is constantly developing, contributes to the solution of plant protection problems, primarily at the regional and national level, produces knowledge at international level, provides its employees with the ability to solve problems with contemporary methods, and enables its graduates to do their job at the international level as well as at home, together with contemporary and quality education. and to train Agricultural Engineers who are graduates of Plant Protection Department who are sensitive to the environment. In line with this purpose, by evaluating the potential of the students at the highest level with various courses and practices in the Undergraduate Plant Protection education, to provide education in the field of Plant Protection, to bring and introduce new techniques and applications to the region, to work in cooperation with the producer, public and private sector to solve potential problems scientifically and practically. to produce solutions.


4- Target

As Sakarya University of Applied Sciences Faculty of Agriculture Department of Plant Protection, our main goal is to follow the plant protection problems in our country, especially in our region, and in the world, to produce the fastest and most effective solutions against these problems, to observe with an analytical and rational point of view, and to take the necessary measures when necessary. To train Agricultural Engineers above the standards.
