On March 19, Li Jianzhu, Deputy Director of the Science and Technology Department of Chinese Forestry and Grassland Administration, and Song Hongzhu, Director of the Innovation Department, accompanied by Jin Donghai, Director of the Liaoning Forestry and Grassland Administration, visited the Key Laboratory for Prevention and Control of Dangerous Forest Pests in Liaoning Province, and listened to the work report of the laboratory from 2019 to 2020 and the main scientific research directions of the 14th Five-year Plan.
At the report meeting, Jin Donghai introduced the background of the establishment of the Key Laboratory for Prevention and Control of Dangerous Forest Pests in Liaoning Province, as well as the scientific and technological research work carried out by the laboratory according to the actual production needs of the prevention and control of forest pests in Liaoning Province, and expressed his gratitude to the Science and Technology Department of the Chinese Forestry and Grassland Administration for its support and help for Liaoning forestry science and technology over the years.
In his speech, Vice President Shao Yu extended her warm welcome and heartfelt thanks to all leaders for their guidance, and briefly introduced the school running situation. Shao Yu pointed out that the construction of the provincial key laboratory is of great significance for the university to further refine the discipline direction, gather scientific research talents, and then improve the level of personnel training. In the process of project construction, the key laboratory has been strongly supported by the Forest and Grass Control Station of Chinese Forestry and Grassland Administration, Liaoning Forest and Grass Control and Quarantine Station, Liaoning Science and Technology Department, Shenyang-Fushun Reform and Innovation Demonstration Area and peer experts. She said that the University attached great importance to the construction of the provincial key laboratory. Wang Zhaobao, chairman of the board, personally took charge of the construction of the laboratory. He set up a preparatory group for the construction of the laboratory, which was responsible for the construction planning of the laboratory. He also hired experts with high reputation and profound academic attainments to form an academic committee to guide the discipline development of the laboratory. The key laboratory will closely focus on the research direction of forest protection, combined with the relevant research projects already undertaken, focus on scientific and technological research and innovation research, and contribute to the ecological civilization construction and forestry pest epidemic prevention and control in Northeast China.
Song Hongzhu fully affirmed that Liaoning Forestry and Grassland Administration attached great importance to the prevention and control of forest pests. She said that Liaoning has always been in the forefront of the country in ecological construction, and has set an example for the whole country from scientific research to promotion. Liaoning Key Laboratory for the Prevention and Control of Dangerous Forest Pests has made a series of positive achievements in the research on the transmission mechanism of pine wilt disease, which has important guiding significance for the prevention and control of pine wilt disease in China. It is hoped that the laboratory will make further efforts to effectively curb the spread of pine wilt and ensure the ecological security of mid temperate and cold temperate forest areas in China.
Li Jianzhu highly praised the scientific research atmosphere, scientific research progress, talent team construction and infrastructure construction of Liaoning Key Laboratory for the Prevention and Control of Dangerous Forest Pests. He further stressed that pine wilt disease is in a spreading trend and the situation is very serious. To this end, we should establish the awareness of eliminating insects and preserving the territory, guard the northern defense line, and conscientiously fulfill the responsibility of guarding the territory. Liaoning Forestry and Grassland Administration strongly supports the construction of the key laboratory with high strategic vision. The achievements of the laboratory in theoretical research, prevention and control path, prevention and control measures, prevention and control equipment, pesticide selection and other aspects have extremely important guiding significance for production practice. It is a very good attempt for the three parties to build a key laboratory to reveal the disaster mechanism of pine wilt in the middle temperate zone of China as soon as possible, and provide scientific theoretical basis and technical support for the integration of prevention and control technology.
Zhang Tiegang, Director of Science and Technology Department of Liaoning Forestry and Grassland Administration, Zhang Muchun, researcher, and Qin Xiuchen, Deputy Director of Liaoning Forestry Development Service Center also attended the inspection.
