About the Book

In this book, a vision for the future of plant pathology has been described that must be pursued and supported for sustainable production of healthy plants upon which life itself depends. This book focuses on the area of research on diverse aspects of plant pathogen is invaluable. Advanced techniques for rapid, reliable and specific detection and characterization of pathogen is promoted. Identification of resistance genes and their source, development of molecular markers for resistance, environmental health by promoting bio-control agents and growth promoting bacteria and transgenic resistance as well as host-pathogen interaction.
