Identify and prioritize key topical areas regarding seed health and phytosanitary that would lead to increased alignment of pest targets and detection methods among countries and companies.
- Evaluation and/or development of testing technologies to differentiate infectious vs. non-infectious pest particles, enabling conclusions about efficacy of seed treatments for non-culturable pest targets.
- Determine the threshold of pathogen contamination to cause economic significance under varying environmental conditions, inoculum sources and seed infection rates, using this information to determine needed detection capability for SH/phytosanitary methods.
- Establish on-going funding to increase the training of broadly trained seed pathologists with research outcomes that embrace new technology but are also balanced against biological relevance.
