The aims of the workshop were to document the importance of diseases in pastures from a realistic assessment of the extent and nature of losses caused by diseases in each country and to consider the methodology needed to assess accurately such losses using economic analysis; to critically review the current state of knowledge in pasture and forage pathology in each country and to outline the progress made in the management of pastue/forage crop diseases; to exchange information on concepts, methods, approaches and recent advances in disease management to collage and establish a current knowledge base; and to enable key researchers from the three countries working on pasture/forage diseases to promote collaboration, identify priority areas for future research and make recommendations. In addition to the scientific and economic aspects of pasture and forage crop pathology, the workshop addressed issues of low profile of pasture and forage crop pathology, the current status of pasture pathology in the three countries and future outlook.
