Special Issue Information
Plant protection, including disease control, is one of the most important tasks of producers and scientists in the conditions of climatic change, particularly in an environmentally friendly way. Integrated disease control includes multiple strategies and a complex approach based on the knowledge of pathogens, plants, and agronomy, as well as the interaction between them. Biological diversity, resistance, agronomic practice, programmes of warning and forecasting, biological fungicides, sustainable use of fungicides, and education of farmers are important parts of integrated disease control.
We invite researchers to submit original scientific articles, reviews, and communications which address the integrated fungal disease management of different crops. The scope of the issue includes studies focusing on the latest developments in the biological diversity of fungi associated with plants, mechanisms of resistance, durable resistance and tolerance of cultivars, pathogenicity and other biological traits of fungi, emerging and well-known diseases, possibilities of biological control, new fungicides, warning or forecast systems, and different schemes of fungicide applications. Manuscripts devoted to the achievements and problems of integrated disease control from different points of view could also be considered. In addition, we welcome manuscripts related to fundamental and applied research.
