Tomato yellow leaf curl disease (TYLCD) causes severe damage to tomato crops worldwide, resulting in high economic losses, and current control measures using insecticides are ineffective and harmful. Monci et al. propose effective and environmentally friendly alternatives to reduce TYLCD damage in susceptible tomato cultivars and improve disease control in resistant cultivars.

"At every step along the way [since my time as an undergraduate student], engagement in APS was encouraged, if not insisted upon, by my mentors. I cannot now imagine how isolated, poor, and disconnected our professional life would be without having APS as a disciplinary home."
