Section Information

The Pest and Disease Management Crops section publishes original research papers, reviews, mini-reviews, perspectives, and methodology articles related to pest and disease biology, ecology and control in all types of field crops and orchards, at the pre-harvest and post-harvest stages of all agricultural commodities.
