Management of Wheat Diseases

Description

Diseases are major causes of yield loss in wheat. Wheat diseases cause harvest losses, affect the quality of the harvest crop, and cause storage losses. Yield losses might depend on the resistance and tolerance of the wheat variety to specific diseases, the level of the pathogen inoculum present, and the environmental conditions.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles. The main focus of this special issue will be on the latest developments, concepts, and innovative approaches to promote development and implementation of integrated pest management (IPM) as an approach to achieve environmentally, economically, and societally sustainable agriculture and production of safe and marketable products. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Integrated management to control fungi, bacteria, and viruses in wheat
  • The impact of diseases on yield, yield components, and the physiological components of the yield
  • The impact of the diseases on quality
  • Resistance to diseases, mechanisms, and genes involved
  • Biological, cultural, and chemical control
  • The effects of climate change on wheat diseases
  • Infection risk forecast models
  • The effects of cultural practices on wheat diseases
