Fruit and vegetable rot caused by pathogens is an important factor causing economic losses to farmers. Fruits and vegetables are susceptible to pathogens at multiple stages before and after harvest, resulting in severe postharvest product decay and huge economic losses. The host range and pathogenicity of pathogens isolated in different regions vary greatly, which is the result of pathogens adapting to the local environment. Therefore, isolation and identification of region-specific strains are crucial for the development of strain-specific antifungal agents. Presently, the main control practice for postharvest disease is using synthetic chemical fungicides. However, problems associated with the use of these chemicals (health, environmental, and emergence of resistant strains) have increasingly become prominent.
For this reason, we encourage manuscripts on the isolation of fruit and vegetable pathogens that have not yet been reported, the development of new control measures for fruit and vegetable diseases, and antifungal mechanisms of agents, to be submitted to a Special Issue of the Journal of Fungi on “Isolation and Control of Fruit and Vegetable Rot Fungi”.

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. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
