In 1958, Mongolia began to cultivate its virgin land and develop an agricultural industry based on science. The Institute was established to protect grain, potatoes, and vegetables from various deceases, pesticides, rodents, weeds, and the pasture from rodents and locusts.

In general, the Institute of Plant Protection Research plays an important role in food supply and safety, pasture protection, and forest protection in Mongolia.


With a total floor space of 3232 square meters, the new research laboratory complex is a 4-storey building having research laboratories, office rooms, cold storage rooms, and a sports recreation hall.
