Abstract

At the international level in the recent past, agriculture research has been revolutionized with significant increase in the movement of crucifer’s germplasm and in the cropping patterns of this important group of crop commodity all over the world. The absence of strict measures on the restriction of movement of germplasm and the intensive and/or extensive cultivation of these crops have resulted in large-scale perpetuation, build-up, and dissemination of Hyaloperonospora parasitica virulence on cruciferous species all over the world. The information gathered in this book indicates that some gaps still exist in the complete comprehension of this disease, and this is highlighted below: even after well-developed techniques, procedures, and protocols available using Arabidopsis-Hyaloperonospora pathosystem, progress to use this information has not attained satisfactory level.
