Plant pathologists meeting in Anaheim, CA to discuss agricultural security, food safety, and more

St. Paul, MN (August 2, 2004) Plant pathologists (plant disease experts) from around the world are meeting in Anaheim, CA for the 2004 Annual Meeting of The American Phytopathological Society (APS) that runs through August 4. Over a five-day period, these plant scientists will present more than 30 different sessions on agricultural issues, new research discoveries, and more. Upcoming sessions of special note include:

Food Safety as Influenced by Phyllosphere Microflora. Tuesday, August 3, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. Eastern Time Recent advances in food safety research are enabling plant pathologists to gain insight into how dangerous human pathogens, such as certain strains of E.coli and Salmonella, can survive on fresh fruits and vegetables and what can be done to control future outbreaks. Speakers will address factors that influence establishment and persistence of human pathogens on fruit and vegetables from pre-harvest through processing and storage.

Challenges at the Urban/Ag Interface. Tuesday, August 3, 1 - 5 p.m. Eastern Time This symposium will look at problems associated with large urban populations encroaching upon production agriculture. California, with its large population centers and highly productive agriculture industry, experiences many such challenges. To serve as a model for similar situations throughout the U.S., pathologists will present their learnings from California's experience.

Organic Foods -- From Production to Market. Tuesday, August 3, 1 - 5 p.m. Eastern Time Organic farming is one of the fastest-growing segments of U.S. agriculture, with organic food sales reaching $9.3 billion in 2002. This session will examine organic agriculture from a plant pathology perspective and address questions regarding funding sources for organic agricultural research, plant diseases and control methods, and the function of the National Organic Standards Board.

Meeting events are being held at the Anaheim Convention Center, 8
