Welcome to the web site of the Quebec Society for the Protection of Plants!

Founded at Macdonald College, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue on June 24, 1908 by Professor William Lochhead and a group of dedicated biologists, the Quebec Society for the Protection of Plants (QSPP) is the oldest scientific society in North America devoted to the protection of plants.

Still functioning under its original name, the Society brings together researchers from universities and federal and provincial governments, agronomists, biologists, professional foresters, technologists, students, as well as any person interested in plant protection. Members of the Society are concerned with theoretical and practical aspects of plant protection, notably in the disciplines of entomology, nematology, pathology and weed science, in the fields of agriculture, forestry and horticulture.
