Experts and researchers in the field can contribute with original research articles, reviews, and opinion pieces addressing disease control in fruit crops. Papers on all types of biotic diseases will be considered in this Special Issue. Disease control is understood in its broad sense, including exclusion, eradication, protection, and resistance. Fruit crops are considered in the widest sense as cultivated trees, woody vines, shrubs, or subshrubs that yield fleshy or hard edible fruits or seeds.
