One of the most efficient ways to control plant diseases is to sow or plant pathogen free materials. Early detection and identification of plant pathogens in crops and propagated material would make possible to eliminate infected plants and seeds and thus decrease the incidence of the pathogens in the field. Since the discovery of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) there have been rapid development of nucleic acid-based techniques using PCR for the detection of all types of pathogenic agents. These proceedings of the workshop held in Ceske Budejovice (CZ), 20-21 June 1996, present recent advances in the development of PCR assays for plant pathogens.
