Special Issue Information
Integrated pest management is of extreme importance, especially today, when fewer active substances are available to apply against pests that affect all agricultural productions. Therefore, new methods and strategies are needed to deal with new invasive pests and to prevent outbreaks of diseases. Plant health and its protection is not limited to the presence or absence of pest populations but includes human health, as a part of the “One Health” concept.
This Special Issue of "Crop Protection, Diseases, Pests, and Weeds" aims to publish high-quality scientific multidisciplinary contributions demonstrating the integration of different control methods into crop protection.
It is also important to consider for publication studies on traditional and innovative strategies for the control of plant diseases and insect pests, as well as weeds, especially today in the context of sustainable agriculture.
It is of great importance for the scientific community to disseminate its research results, as well as their possible practical applications.
Topics in this Special Issue should include integrated pest and weeds management; studies on new biopesticides; the environmental effect of pesticides; biological control; the use of natural compounds as fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, and others in crop protection; the effect of invasive alien species in agroecosystems; and sampling and monitoring schemes for pests and diseases.
