Plant pathology is the study of the environmental conditions that cause diseases in plants, the interactions between the infectious agents and the plant and the methods of managing plant diseases. The study includes a wide range of categories such as plant viruses, fungi, bacteria, nematodes, protozoa, parasitic plants, viroid, and oomycetes. Globally, enormous losses of crops are caused by the plant diseases. The loss can be from the time of seed sowing in the field until harvesting and storage. It deals with the cause, etiology, resulting losses and the management of the plant diseases. It comprises with the basic knowledge and technologies of botany, plant anatomy, plant physiology, mycology, Bacteriology, Horticulture, Tissue culture, Soil science and other branches of applied science.
