Scientific Sessions

Plant-Pathogen Genetics

The genetic information of plant pathogens like viruses, bacteria, and other infectious organisms has long played a crucial role in the management and control of plant diseases. Advances in molecular technologies and bioinformatics have made it possible to examine pathogen genomes in much greater detail. Now, falling cost and turnaround time are bringing high-throughput genetic sequencing within reach for use by clinical and public health investigators.

Biological Control by Microorganisms

The terms biological control used in different fields of biology and in plant pathology. It applies to the use of microbial antagonists to suppress diseases as well as the use of host-specific pathogens to control weed populations the organism that suppresses the pest or pathogen is referred to as the biological control agent. A wide variety of chemicals called antimicrobial agents are available for controlling the growth of microbes such as chemotherapeutic agents, disinfectants and antiseptics etc..

Plant Diseases: Identification & Control

The main aim of plant disease management is to reduce the economic and aesthetic damage caused by plant diseases. Traditionally, this has been called plant disease control, but current social and environmental values deem control as being absolute and the term too rigid disease fungi take their energy from the plants on which they live. They are responsible for a great deal of damage and are characterized by wilting, scabs, moldy coatings, rusts, and blotches and rotted tissue. Removal of diseased plant tissues on the plant itself is your next line of defence. Prune out diseased foliage, twigs or branches, handpick blighted camellia blossoms as they appear and dispose of these in the trash.

Common Vegetable Diseases and Protection

The vegetables including potato, tuber crops, mushroom, have become key drivers for economic development in many of the states in the country Hence the adoption of suitable management measures with low residue levels in the final produces becomes a requirement. Mostly there are two types of diseases which can be seen in vegetables that is due to fungus and bacteria such as black rot, bacterial canker, bacterial leaf spot, white blister, downy mildew and clubroot etc..

Crop Research & Seed Science Technology

Crop research might be characterized as action coordinated to making the generation, promoting and utilization of business crops more proficient and gainful. Consequently, edit research may include any of the majority of the accompanying: Plant Breeding, plant physiology and Biochemistry Yields incorporate grain and Oilseed crops, forages, claim to fame crops, vegetables, fruits and ornamental seed science is the analysis of the structure and advancement of seeds from the snapshot of treatment of the egg cell on the maternal plant until the point that arrangement of another plant from the seed. Seed science is partitioned into two segments carpology, studies the seeds and products of wild plants.

Computer-Aided Drug Discovery in Plant Pathology

Control of plant diseases is largely dependent on the use of agrochemicals. However, there are widening gaps between our knowledge on plant diseases gained from genetic/mechanistic studies and rapid translation of the knowledge into target-oriented development of effective agrochemicals. Here we propose that the time is ripe for computer-aided drug discovery in molecular plant pathology. CADD has played a pivotal role in the development of medically important molecules over the last three decades. Now, the explosive increase in information on genome sequences and three-dimensional structures of biological molecules, The strategies of designing a new drug by using bioinformatics implements have opened a brand new location of drug research and development y the use of computational methods and the 3D structural statistics of the protein target.

Epidemiology of Plant Diseases

Plant disease epidemiology is the study of disease in plant populations, plant diseases occur due to pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, oomycetes, nematodes, phytoplasmas, protozoa, and parasitic plants. Plant disease epidemiologists strive for an understanding of the cause and effects of disease and develop strategies to intervene in situations where crop losses may occur. The study of epidemics and factors influencing them is called epidemiology Plant disease epidemiology studies the spatial and temporal dynamics as well as the ecology of the interaction between populations of plant pathogens, plant hosts, and the environment.

Microbial Interactions and Plant Health

Microorganism–host interactions are the key strategy to colonize and establish in a variety of different environments. These interactions involve all ecological aspects, including physiochemical changes, metabolite exchange, metabolite conversion, signalling, chemotaxis and genetic exchange resulting in genotype selection. In addition, the establishment in the environment depends on the species diversity, since high functional redundancy in the microbial community increases the competitive ability of the community, decreasing the possibility of an invader to establish in this environment. The plant phenotype and ecology can be affected by the impact of the symbiotic microbes on the environment and competition for soil resources.

Organic Farming and Plant Diseases

Root diseases are generally less severe owing to greater soil health, whereas some foliar diseases can be problematic in organic agriculture. The soil microbial community and nitrogen availability play an important role in disease development and yield. Demand for safe and healthy food has been increasing with every passing day. The ill-effects of plant protection chemicals on the flora, fauna, humans and environment as a whole are the major concerns. Disease management in organic farming is largely based on the maintenance of biological diversity and soil health by balanced crop rotations, including nitrogen-fixing and cover crops, intercrops, additions of manure and compost and reductions in soil tillage

Pathogenic Fungi and Fungal Diseases

Fungi are among the dominant causal agents of plant diseases. Some fungi kill their hosts and feed on dead material, while others colonize the living tissue For the successful invasion of plant organs, pathogenic development is tightly regulated and specialized infection structures are formed. To further colonize hosts and establish disease, fungal pathogens deploy a plethora of virulence factors, in contrast, biotrophs utilize effector molecules to suppress plant cell death and manipulate plant metabolism in favour of the pathogen.

Plant Pathology and Weed science

Plant pathology is the scientific study of diseases in plants caused by pathogens and environmental conditions. Organisms that cause infectious disease include fungi, bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasma, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic plants. Weed Science is the study of vegetation management in agriculture, aquatics, horticulture, right-of-way, essentially anywhere plants need to be managed. It involves the study of all the tools available for this purpose such as cropping systems, herbicides, and management techniques and seed genetics. However, it is not just the controlling of plants, but the study of these plants.

Plant Protection Methods

Plant protection is the practice of managing weather, weeds, pests and diseases that damage or inhibit the growth of fruit, vegetable and other horticultural crops Proper crop protection is important to produce higher quality crops with minimal wastage. This increase in productivity leads to less land, water and labour being required for food crops Plant protection measures are carried out to limit performance and yield losses in crop production during the growing season and afterwards storage protection as well as for quarantine purposes. They serve primarily to safeguard yields, although in combination with other cultivation measures they can also help to raise yields.
