Protect Crop Plants from Biotic Stresses From Field to Market

There is a need to improve current approaches to crop protection by focusing on the plant, the pests, pathogens, weeds, and/or their interactions. By protecting and expanding current protection on a number of crops, new tech and solutions could increase the sustainable productivity of smallholder farmers.

Nature and Context

Most crop protection strategies involve genetic improvement of plants to resist pests, pathogens and/or the application of chemical deterrents. Pests and pathogens that affect crop plants after harvest can be equally difficult for smallholder farmers to combat. Post-harvest losses mean surplus crops do not reach the market, affecting the livelihoods of farming families, and the communities they support.
