  • Aims and scope

Research in Plant Disease is an international journal for papers related to fundamental research that advances understanding of the nature of plant diseases and rapid reporting of research on new diseases, epidemics and methods for disease control. It covers basic and applied research focusing on practical aspects of disease diagnosis and treatment.

Topics covered by the journal include:

  • • New disease, new disease outbreaks, new hosts and pertinent new observations of plant diseases and pathogens worldwide
  • • Applications for biotechnology and molecular biology relevant to crop hosts and pathogens
  • • Biological control, biopesticides and integrated crop management
  • • Synthetic and naturally occurring compounds for the control crop diseases
  • • New disease screening methods
  • • Biochemical mode of action studies of compounds for the control of crop diseases
  • • Resistance of crop pathogensto compounds
  • • Metabolism, degradation, field performance, environmental studies and safety in use of new and existing products
  • • Ecological implications of disease control agents alone and with other methods of disease control
  • • Selection of crop varieties resistant to phytopathogens
