The foundation of teaching and research in Entomology and Plant Pathology in the Southern Punjab was laid with the establishment of the MNS-University of Agriculture Multan in 2012. Based on Plant Pathology, Entomology and Weed Science, Institute of Plant Protection (IPP) was established in 2019. We owe to our distinction, the dedication to excellence in research and teaching, therefore attracting a large number of students at undergraduate as well as postgraduate and doctoral levels. The main thrust of IPP is the application of plant protection measures and techniques in identification, characterization of newly emerging and reemerging pests and to devise their management strategies for food security. The Institute has inherited ties with local research institutes like CCRI, CRS, MRI, AMRI, Agri. Extension, Pest Warning and Quality Control of Pesticides etc. These links will pave the path in grooming the students of the Institute in a professional and practical way. Several research projects have been submitted to renowned funding agencies of National and International fame like USAID, Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan Science Foundation, Pakistan Agriculture Research Board (PARB), International Foundation for Science (IFS), ACIAR and JICA. Moreover, five research projects have been funded by PARB, HEC and IFS on Cotton Whitefly and Pink bollworm, Mango Fruit and Shoot Borer and Mango Fruit Fly, and viruses of onion and garlic, respectively. Currently, active programs are B. Sc. (Hons.) Agriculture (Entomology & Plant Pathology), M. Sc. (Hons.) Entomology, M. Sc. (Hons.) Plant Pathology, Ph. D Entomology and Ph. D Plant Pathology.
