Speedy development of agriculture is vital to the progress of a country. For securing maximum crop production, the agricultural practices have evolved into highly technified and sophisticated plant production systems. Until recently, the management of plant diseases in these systems was done exclusively by the use of broad-spectrum chemical pesticides. However, there is reason for concern about the potential damage to ecosystems and pollution of groundwaters resulting from the widespread use of these chemicals on agricultural crops that led scientists to develop disease resistant transgenic plants as an alternative approach for controlling pathogens.
