To know about the etiology of any pathological event has a great value, since the effectiveness of the regulatory practices designed and their economic, social, and environmental sustainability will depend on it. A sustainably functional disease management system is based on a set of knowledge, in which case diagnosis and disease risk assessment play a fundamental role. Nanodiagnostic using nanodevices and nanosystems are faster, sensitive, and flexible for the detection/identification of crops diseases compared with traditional diagnostic methods; for these reasons the current chapter will give information about nanotechnology applied to diagnosis of diseases caused by fungi and viruses in some important economic crops.
