Horticulture is the art and science of cultivating plants for both utility and beauty, including vegetables, fruits, flowers, and medicinal plants. Horticulture has become a key driver for economic development in agro-based countries around the world. Intensive cultivation is necessary for safe, healthy, highly valued horticultural crops, and sustainable agriculture. Diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, viruses, nematodes, etc. are the most important constraints on the production of horticultural crops. Disease detection, life cycle studies of causal organisms, and prevention play important roles in the production of horticultural foods.
This Special Issue focuses on disease detection, monitoring, causal organism isolation, identification by molecular and morphological methods, endophytic diversity, antagonist selection and biocontrol activity, integrated disease management and prevention, etc. Submissions to the Special Issue could relate to the above-mentioned topics but are not limited to them. We welcome well-prepared manuscripts of original research, review articles, and short communications.
