During this hard time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we praise medical personnel looking after our lives. However, we are also concerned about the global economy and the supply of food for the population worldwide. The United Nations has dedicated 2020 to raising awareness about plant health and the impact of healthy plants on food security, poverty, economic development, and sustainability. We know that grain cereals, such as rice, wheat, barley, and maize, are the nutritional basis of the diets of humans and animals. Will the global production of cereals be enough to feed us all? Their sufficient supply and good quality are the foundation for peace and safety.
In this Special Issue, we welcome original research, reviews, and opinions on recent advances in strategies for the control of Fusarium head blight, which is one of the biggest concerns in cereal health. Are there any useful ways of inoculum monitoring to detect Fusarium pathogens at the earliest possible point? Of determining cultivars resistant to the disease and tools supporting resistance breeding? Of developing useful decision support systems? Of discovering means of disease control with agrotechnologies? In this Special Issue, we are interested in preventing grain losses, but we are also interested in ensuring that the rescued yield is free from mycotoxins.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
