About the Event
Plant diseases represent a major challenge to agriculture and food production globally and specifically in the Mediterranean area, accounting for an estimated 10% of crop yield loss each year. The outcome of plant-pathogen interactions is dictated by the genotypes of host and pathogen, as well as environmental conditions, and these factors determine whether a plant survives or succumbs to disease.
Climate change increases the incidence of extreme weather events that may affect plant-pathogen interaction and disease appearance.
