Indian Society of Mycology and Plant Pathology

The creation of Indian Society of Mycology and Plant Pathology was a dream of Plant Pathologists of early seventies who were inspired by doyens such as Dr. N. Prasad and Dr. R. Prasada. For quite some time prior to 1969, a large number of researchers in the field of Mycology and Plant Pathology were feeling the necessity of an additional journal to publish their research findings without delay. This need was obviously due to an increase in the number of Agriculture Universities and Research Institutions in India after independence, and consequently there was an increased output of research on fundamental and applied aspects of Mycology and Plant Pathology.
