Crops are constantly challenged by diverse environmental factors as well as attacking pests and pathogens. Here, we discuss one of the challenges agriculture is facing, using the important wheat pathogen Zymoseptoria tritici as an example. We highlight the importance to study the fungal pathogen as well as the plant host and conclude that a better understanding of plant-microbe interaction is essential to develop improved strategies for crop protection.
