Nano-particles have wide potential in plant disease diagnosis and as an eco-friendly mode of disease management. Nano-scale platforms, biological sensors, miniature detection devices and nano-sensors could play a significant role in pathogen detection and disease management in the future. In this article various nano-particles utilized in disease management and the possibility of large scale adaptability of nano-particles by integrating into present practices and avoiding crop losses reviewed. Study identifies existing efficacy of anti-microbial activities of silver, silicon-silver, Zinc-iron-magnesium oxides, copper, validamycin, chitosan and iron nano-particles. Seven different types of gaps were identified for use of these particles in pathogen managements and these were pertains to pathogen types, hypothetical mode of actions, application of these particles at phyllosphere and rhizosphere, environmental stability and economics of nano-particles.

Keywords: Knowledge and Gaps Nano-technology, Nano-particles, Plant protection, Plant disease management, Mode of actions
