Plant pathogens are broadly categorized by the mechanisms by which they obtain nutritional resources from the host plant. Necrotrophs use toxins and cell-wall-degrading enzymes to rapidly kill host plant cells and consume 26 Chapter 2 the plant cell nutrients that are released. , 2001). As a result they are often specialists and have evolved a complex set of genes and transcriptional responses associated with virulence as a result of the arms race for survival between pathogen and host. The negative impact of biotrophs on the host plant occurs as a result of the pathogen diverting host nutrients for its own purposes.

The availability of fungicides that are considered to pose a hazard as endocrine disruptors could be reduced also, which might result in 20–30% yield losses in wheat due to an inability to control Septoria tritici, and would jeopardize disease control on oilseed rape leading to significant yield loss (PSD, 2008a,b). Integrated Pest Management New systems of crop protection must be effective in improving crop yield and quality, be safe for people, not cause unacceptable environmental harm, prevent the evolution of pesticide resistance and be adaptable to cope with emerging pests.
