Special Issue Information
The development of means for plant disease control is an important topic for researchers in the agricultural sciences. The use of fungicides is also an extremely important method to reduce the occurrence of plant diseases. However, under the concerns on environmental friendliness and food safety, the grower is gradually turning to developing integrated strategies to manage plant diseases. Under this demand, biological control has become one of the most important development directions. The biological control of plant diseases is mainly based on the use of microorganisms with different functions on plants to reduce the occurrence of diseases, and even a variety of biological control agents have been commercialized and implemented in the field.
This Special Issue focuses on reducing the occurrence of plant diseases in functional microorganisms by the application of biocontrol agents to crops in the greenhouse/field. This Special Issue on Biological Control for Plant Diseases will include interdisciplinary studies, including microbiology, plant pathology, and fermentation. Research articles will cover a broad range of disease control by using biological control agents on crops. All types of articles, such as original research and reviews are welcome.
