FA COST Action 864
Combining traditional and advanced strategies for plant protection in pome fruit growing

The main objective of the Action is to increase the knowledge on the plant-biology involved in pome fruit health by establishing a network of scientists dealing with pome fruit growing and by creating an interface between basic and applied science for disease and pest management. The research topics will focus on plant-pathogen-interactions, germplasm-resources and breeding, production methods, and biotechnological approaches.
