Nutzpflanzen nachhaltig vor Krankheiten schützen?


Crops are constantly challenged by diverse environmental factors as well
as attacking pests and pathogens. Here, we discuss one of the challenges
agriculture is facing, using the important wheat pathogen Zymoseptoria
as an example. We highlight the importance to study the fungal
pathogen as well as the plant host and conclude that a better under -
standing of plant-microbe interaction is essential to develop improved
strategies for crop protection.
