Disease Management includes use of a combination of methods/strategies to check a whole spectrum of pathogens, pests, physiological changes within a particular cropping system. The aim of this series is to provide an overview of disease management of fruits and vegetables, highlighting the major problem areas and contentious issues and where possible, attempting to identify promising lines and directions for future research and implementation. Disease management involves a number of stake holders ranging from scientists to farmers an agri-business to consumers.
This series is meant to cater the needs of a vast array of biologists and agriculturists who are concerned about the loss of produce due to plant diseases in general. The population of the world is increasing in a horrifying proportion compared to food production. The total requirement of cereals is not enough to feed. Eating habits are slightly changing and shifting towards fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables make a significant contribution towards human diet as the key source of nutrition.
