Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The diagnosis and management of diseases are the pillars of phytopathology.

One of the current challenges is carrying out diagnosis in real time, i.e., in the field. Affordable tools with high specificity and sensitivity are essential for making accurate decisions.

The management of vegetable diseases is highly complex, whether due to the large number of phytopathogens that affect different crops, the similarity of symptoms and the scarcity of registered products when compared to that of the main commodities.

Applied research can strongly contribute to solving problems in the field in the short and medium term. Therefore, it is important that we obtain results that are applicable to the conditions of farmers. Agricultural research must cross laboratory barriers and be tangible to those who produce the food we consume.
