This collection of articles is a response to the rapid expansion of the global seed trade, a trend that makes seed-borne disease an increasingly significant problem in both developed and developing nations. Based on the proceedings of a symposium held at the 1994 annual meeting of the American Phytopathological Society, these articles address the seed pathology-related interests of organizations that play a role in trading, improving, and regulating seeds in world markets. The contents are as follows:

  • Relevance of seed pathology research priorities to worldwide movement of seed
  • Implications to international trading of seeds
  • Implications to multinational seed production
  • Activities at the International Agricultural Research Centers to control pathogens in germplasm
  • Seed Quarantine Systems in the United States
  • World phytosanitary system: problems and solutions
  • Regulatory needs for standardized seed health tests
  • Government/Vegetable seed industry cooperation in the Netherlands
  • Index
