Unfavorable environment conditions like abiotic stresses (drought, salinity, waterlogging, extreme temperature, etc.) and biotic factors (fungi, virus, bacteria, pest, and insects) have affected the plant growth and development. Pea is the most important legume crop with great nutritive value in terms of starch and protein. Like other crops, pea production has also been adversely affected by biotic stresses. Various diseases like powdery mildew, rust, ascochyta blight, white rot, wilt, root rot, and collar rot have decreased the yield and production rate of pea crop across the globe. Approaches like classical and modern breeding and biotechnology interventions are being utilized by the basic plant researches and the breeders to protect the pea crop from these biotic stresses. In this chapter attempts will be made to discuss various biotic stresses which affect the legume production especially pea and approaches to overcome these stresses which will be useful for pea improvement program.
