Disease management relies on a number of different methods, including use of chemical control, cultural control methods, and the use of disease-resistant cultivars when available. In addition, there is extensive work ongoing to investigate the possibility of using biological organisms for disease control. A combination of disease control measures in an integrated pest management program is important in successful disease management.
