Abstract:

The changing global climatic scenario is a serious threat to the field of plant disease management. Reckless use of traditional agrochemicals is augmenting risks of environmental and ecological hazard with a negative impact on available resources in managing plant diseases. Frequent use of toxic agrochemicals poses threat not only to the abiotic components but also are of serious concern to the biotic factors of our ecosystem. The era demands incessant exploration in the innovative and opportunistic strategies which have greater impact with minimal use in eliminating plant diseases. Nanotechnology in the field of Phytopathology may be one among them to be explored in future for its specificity in effective plant disease management. Nanoparticle with its novel characters like low requirement, slow and persistent release and rapid fungicidal action may prove to be a unique way of controlling plant diseases with least disruption of our natural ecosystem.
