Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

One of the main challenges in agriculture is to provide enough quality vegetables for a world population in continuous growth. To reach this goal, research into the different strategies to manage plant disease is extremely important.

This Special Issue aims to provide a summary of the latest research on all aspects related to plant disease management. This includes all these topics of interest:

Plant disease epidemiology (fungi, virus, and nematodes), diagnosis, plant disease genetic resistance, plant disease susceptibility, resistance durability, host-pathogen interaction, biological control, biopesticides, practices to reduce inoculum/population level in soils, and in general, any novel IPM strategy to manage one or several pathogens.

We are looking forward to your contributions,

Best regards,

Dr. Leticia Ruiz García
