Join the upcoming Plant Pathology Conference to meet the eminent researchers in the field of Plant Pathology. Worldwide speakers will speak on Plant Pathology and its major cause and symptoms. The target audiences will be agronomists, Plant Science Researchers, Students, Professors, Heads of Departments, and Business Entrepreneurs.

The Theme of the Conference is Plant-Pathogen Destruction to Mankind. The plant is the major source of food, oxygen, and wood, and hence protection of plants from pathogenic attacks is a major concern. Some major techniques can be used to protect the plant from fungal disease. Some methods like Integrated Pest Management, use of Quality pesticides, and Quarantine measures

Abiotic Disorders in Plants

The plant is affected by both Biotic and Abiotic Disorders. Biotic disorders are caused by infectious microbes like bacteria, fungi, and viruses. The abiotic disorder is caused by a non-infectious agent. This disorder causes a reduction in fertility, imbalance in soil content, loss in irrigation, drought, and many other factors. The plant can be protected from this abiotic disorder by protecting it from the abiotic factors. The noninfectious disease includes nutritional deficiencies, salt imbalance, and soil compaction.

Plant Biotechnology

Biotechnology is the method used to change genetic content to obtain the desired product. Plant Biotechnology is also used in the alteration of the plant genetic content like RNA or DNA to obtain virus-free products. The main target is to create a specific plant variety. The qualities can be disease resistant, and drought resistant. Some of the products of plant biotechnology are bean (with disease resistance), canola (herbicide resistance), cotton plant (insect resistant), and eggplant (insect resistant).

Some of the protocols of plant biotechnology are tissue culture, and genetic engineering to obtain desired plant variety.

Plant Pathology Disease

Plant pathology disease is caused by fungal, bacterial, and viral-like organisms. And these are categorized as biotic agents. Plant disease can affect a high content of loss in plant productivity. The main list of plant pathogens are microbes like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Some of the types of plant diseases are black spots, downy mildew, blight potato disease, canker, and leaf spot. Plant diseases are called plant pathogens when they infect the plant.

Agriculture Biotechnology

Agriculture biotechnology is the use of genetic engineering to produce herbicide-resistant seeds like for example soybean. The development of genetically engineered apples has some qualities like extended shelf life, and the use of CRISPR gene editing technology to produce more milk. Agriculture Biotechnology is important to farmers as it increases crop yield production and lowers input costs. According to American farmers genetically engineered (GE) crops are widely used after 1996, especially for crop production like corn, cotton, and soybean varieties.

Market Analysis

The growth of global Plant Pathology is seen from USD 14972 in 2015 to USD 23750 in 2022. The main factor for the increase in market growth is plant genomics related to a pathological domain.

The main focus is to increase the global networking of scientists and researchers from the field of plant pathology. The market worldwide for estimation of biopesticides was esteemed at $2.78 Billion in 2016 and is calculated to reach up to $ 6.55 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 15.34% for the given period.


The protection of plants from parasitic attacks is a major environmental concern. There are several strategies adapted to protect the plant from plant pathogenic diseases. Some of the methods are Plant Biotechnology, Agricultural Biotechnology, Plant Protection Science, Plant Management, and Plant Breeding.
