Call for Papers - Special Issue

Success stories in plant pathology

Plant Pathology is seeking papers that examine diseases that were once major threats to crops in a region, but which are now well controlled and therefore slipping from the research agenda. Papers should outline the past extent of the diseases and the steps taken that brought them under control.

Deadline for abstracts: 30th September 2023. Find out more here
