This book contains fuller versions of the papers and posters presented in the Knowledge and Technology Transfer and Teaching Plant Pathology sessions at the 9th International Congress of Plant Pathology held in Turin, Italy in 2008.

It is about the building up of trust in the advice given and the enthusiasm of, and methods used by, the teacher. Extension plant pathology had been described as 'plant pathology with a human face'. It is aspects of these personal relationships that are explored in this book. Also covered are the value of participation in decision making, plant clinics and teaching approaches, both in industry and at universities.The book is aimed at those who have an interest in providing advice to farmers and growers and in teaching the subject to those who are to provide that advice.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Volume 4 . with only 9 papers, addresses Knowledge and Technology Transfer for Plant Pathology. . They bring together a summary of work across the whole field of plant pathology . . They thus enable specialists to see their specialism as part of an integrated whole, and for students and those at the start of their careers they provide an invaluable summary of what is going on, who the key players are and where the knowledge lacunae lie." (David Ingram, Food Security, Vol. 3, 2011)
