Abstract

Powdery mildew, a potentially severe crop disease, can be controlled by mlo mutations, which suppress fungal proliferation but typically also reduce yield. Li et al. (2022) demonstrate that productivity can be restored by overexpressing a host sugar transporter, thus offering a new option for economically and environmentally benign disease control.
