Preharvest disease management studies
the epidemiology and ecology of preharvest plant pathogens and develop
sustainable and integrated disease management strategies through fundamental
and applied research.
pathology aims to improve disease and decay control in deciduous fruit
products, through the design of appropriate disease management strategies with
reduced reliance on fungicides.
techniques and technologies are used to accurately and quantitatively detect
plant pathogens, to study their interaction with plants on a molecular and/or
cellular level, and to investigate plant defense responses against them.
