SECTION 1



PLANT
DISEASE




Like human beings and other animals, plants are subject to diseases.
In order to maintain a sufficient food supply for the world’s
population, it is necessary for those involved in plant growth and
management to find ways to combat plant diseases that are capable of
destroying crops on a large scale.

There are many branches of science that participate in the control
of plant diseases. Among them are biochemistry, bio-technology,
soil science, genetics and plant breeding, meteorology, mycology
(fungi), nematology (nematodes), virology (viruses), and weed
science. Chemistry, physics, and statistics also play a role in the
scientific maintenance of plant health. The study of plant diseases
is called plant pathology.

CROP
DISEASES




Bacteria, viruses, fungi, pathogens and parasites cause crop diseases
just as they cause human diseases. The organisms that cause the diseases
are different, but the effect is the same in that they destroy the good
cells. It doesn’t matter whether the organism attacks the roots, stems
or leaves of the crop because it will weaken the crop and cause it either
not to grow properly or die. When a crop has a disease in the leaves, it
cannot get the food supply it needs to grow. Some organisms block the flow
of water from the stems to the roots and then the roots will die for lack
of water and nutrients.

In some cases the only way of controlling these diseases is to burn the
infected crops. Rotating the crops you plant in fields each year sometimes
helps, depending on the specific disease.

WHAT ARE THE
DIFFERENT TYPES OF
CROP DISEASES?




Every year, agricultural producers lose vast quantities of crops to
various crop diseases. To understand how and why certain diseases
strike certain crops, plant pathologists have categorized all diseases
into two general groups, infectious and non-infectious. Once segmented
into one of the categories, diseases are then described by the
characteristic of the offending pathogen or environmental cause, such
as fungal, bacterial, extreme temperatures or soil deficiency. Finally,
horticulturalists further classify a disease by the part of the crop
that is affected, such as leaf diseases, root diseases and more. There
are multitudes of different types of crop diseases, but all diseases
basically fall under the category of infectious and non-infectious for
further classification.

Non-infectious, or abiotic, diseases are those that are caused by
unfavorable environmental circumstances and that do not result from
living organisms. Generally, non-infectious diseases tend to weaken
a plant, making the plant susceptible to the more serious infectious
diseases. Examples of non-infectious diseases include extreme
temperatures, excessive or lack of water, insects, poor soil nutrition
content and toxic chemicals. These factors can weaken the entire plant
or a certain part of the plant, making the plant susceptible to
infectious stem diseases, seed diseases, pod diseases and more.

PLANT
PATHOLOGY




Plant pathology (also phytopathology) is the scientific study of diseases
in plants caused by pathogens (infectious organisms) and environmental
conditions (physiological factors).[1] Organisms that cause infectious
disease include fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like
organisms, phytoplasmas, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic plants. Not
included are ectoparasites like insects, mites, vertebrate, or other pests
that affect plant health by consumption of plant tissues. Plant pathology
also involves the study of pathogen identification, disease etiology, disease
cycles, economic impact, plant disease epidemiology, plant disease resistance,
how plant diseases affect humans and animals, pathosystem genetics, and
management of plant diseases.

PLANT
DISEASE
EPIDEMIOLOGY




Plant disease epidemiology is the study of disease in plant populations.
Much like diseases of humans and other animals, plant diseases occur due
to pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, oomycetes, nematodes,
phytoplasmas, protozoa, and parasitic plants.

Plant disease epidemiologists strive for an understanding of the cause
and effects of disease and develop strategies to intervene in situations
where crop losses may occur. Typically successful intervention will lead
to a low enough level of disease to be acceptable, depending upon the
value of the crop.
