Finally, with modern molecular technology, identified resistance genes can be transferred with specificity between unrelated plants where traditional breeding techniques would be impossible (Agrios, 2005). Breeding for disease resistance is perhaps the dominant disease management strategy for crops with low unit values such as small grains, maize, soybeans and rice where growers cannot afford the use of multiple fungicide sprays or use of other tactics such as long-term rotation. Breeders have developed cultivars with resistance to multiple pathogens.
