Sipp was founded in 1968 and currently has members from all over the Island of Ireland and the world working in many plant pathology related disciplines. The society is very interested in actively promoting the science of plant pathology to students and professionals and encourages increased communication, initiatives and research. Members are in regular contact and meet at least twice a year to discuss the latest research.
A society newsletter is published on a regular basis and contains information and research updates on society activities. The latest newsletter is available on the website.
