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

St. Paul, MN (May 19, 2004) On July 31 August 4, 2004, thousands of plant pathologists (plant disease experts) from across the world will gather at the Anaheim Convention Center for The American Phytopathological Society (APS) Annual Meeting. Over a five-day period, these plant scientists will present more than 30 different sessions on agricultural issues, new research discoveries, and more. Four sessions of special note are:

Challenges at the Urban/Ag Interface
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
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.

Food Safety as Influenced by Phyllosphere Microflora
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.
