The Tropical Plant Pathology Committee of the American Phytopathological Society (APS) seeks to increase awareness and promote education and research of plant pathogens affecting tropical crops. The committee provides platforms for discussions on important diseases affecting tropical crops, their epidemiology and management, through the sponsorship or co-sponsorship of workshops, symposia, special sessions and field trips at the annual meeting of the APS. By promoting an awareness of research on diseases affecting economically important tropical crops, the committee helps to actively engage/involve members of the APS located in tropical/sub-tropical regions of the world thereby enhancing the exchange of ideas between them and APS colleagues in the temperate regions of the world.
