Plant Diseases and Their Management in Organic Agriculture is the first comprehensive book that fully addresses the systems approach to organic plant disease management and is a must for any researcher, student, or practitioner involved in organics research, organics production, or regulation. And it is truly an international collaboration with. Nanotechnology based plant viral disease detection kits are also becoming popular and are useful in speedy and early detection of viral diseases. nanotechnology is extensively used in modern agriculture to make true the concept of precision agriculture. Nanoparticles have a great promise for the management and control of insect pest of Cited by: Biological Control of Plant Pathogens: Research, Commercialization, Application Fig. 1. Example bioassay for biological control of a plant pathogen. Begonias were grown in the greenhouse and inoculated with Botrytis cinerea under conditions optimal for the development of disease. Treatments differing in their efficacy are shown, from left to right. From a plant pathology perspective, Mineral Nutrition and Plant Disease brings the discussion of plant disease diagnosis and management to a new level.
