Formatted Abstract/Summary
This chapter reviews promising agents and approaches for activating systemic resistance in crop plants. It discusses new activators, have optimized use patterns for older activators and how this type of resistance may be incorporated into existing disease management programmes. The chapter describes advances in understanding of microbes and microbial products inducing resistance, and the dual role of many agrochemicals as pesticides with resistance-inducing capacity. It presents the limitations of activators and constraints to commercial implementation are considered. The use of various biotic and abiotic activators has been shown to reduce postharvest disease in a wide range of horticultural crops, with associated increases in defence responses. The chapter investigates the compatibility of plant activators with other integrated pest management (IPM) options including fungicides, bactericides, insecticides, biocontrol agents and cultural control methods and shows the potential strategies for reducing our dependency on traditional chemicals for plant disease control.
