Abstract:
Climate change, intense globalization and the need to increase the sustainability of agricultural activity are major challenges for effective soil disinfestation. The impact of climate change on the soil biota, the geographical distribution of soilborne pathogens, and adaptation strategies are discussed. These challenges underscore the importance of adopting preventive measures in soilborne pathogens control and of holistic approaches that integrate physical, chemical and biological control.
