The philosophy and approach of plant disease management have k e n greatly .influenced by the evolution of an Integrated Pest Management concept, developed originally as an integrated control approach for insects(57). This concept has developed into a holistic, multidisciplinary management system that integrates control methods, on the basis of ecological and cconomic principles, for pests of all classes that coexist in an agroecosystem(l3). Disease management is an integral part of the crop management system and it implies that diseases are inherent components of thc agroecosystem that must be dealt with on a continuous knowledgeable basis. Management is based on the principle of maintain~ng( he damage or crop loss below an cconomic injury level. Plant disease epidemics result from the conjunction of host, pathogen, weather and time(73) and variations in any of these factors greatly influence the course of an epidemic.
