The James Hutton Institute is internationally recognised for research on plant sciences, crop protection, molecular biology, chemistry and agro-ecology. It is Scotland’s leading institute on plants and their interactions with the environment, particularly in developing sustainable agriculture to face challenges of food security, climate change, threatened biodiversity, EU pesticide withdrawals and healthy food. One main focus is more sustainable pest/disease management systems (IPDM) using multi-disciplinary teams to develop IPM strategies involving entomologists, pathologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, phytochemists, mathematical modellers and statisticians. The precedent name of JHI was the Scottish Crop Research Institute
