This e-book perspectives the vulnerability of our plants as a rule to devastating ailments in addition to in particular the sickness difficulties of 2 very important staples, rice and cassava. elevated commute and elevated delivery of plant fabric during the international pose ever extra major hazards to the well-being of our vegetation. those comprise not just the destruction of our meals vegetation by means of pathogens that could be imported by chance or maliciously but in addition their illness via fungi that produce strong pollution (mycotoxins). How we should always reply to those demanding situations is the topic of a number of papers. in actual fact, quarantine is a vital degree in which the unfold of plant pathogens should be a minimum of not on time, if no longer curtailed altogether, yet breeding vegetation for resistance is the mainstay for conserving the comparative overall healthiness and productiveness of our plants. besides the fact that, enough resistance is probably not to be had within the gene pool of a given species or genus and accordingly the opportunity of genetic amendment arises, an issue taken care of in of the papers.

A. van der Graaff and W. 1 Introduction The introduction of agents of plant diseases, other plant pests1 and emerging plant pests are part of a larger group of similar subjects that are covered within the term biosecurity. Biosecurity is used in this paper in the FAO sense (FAO 2007a): Biosecurity is a strategic and integrated approach that encompasses the policy and regulatory frameworks (including instruments and activities) for analyzing and managing relevant risks to human, animal and plant life and health, and associated risks to the environment.

3 Measures: In the literature there is often confusion of the meaning of Measures, Regulations and Standards. In Sanitary and Phytosanitary word use, Measures and Regulations are often used interchangeably. They are issued by individual Governments and are mandatory in the national territory. Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Measures are potential technical barriers to trade, and the WTO SPS agreement stipulates therefore that measures be scientifically justified, and have the least effect on trade.

1 National Phytosanitary Measures Biosecurity concerns primarily national regulatory systems. e. biodiversity and the natural flora), governments take phytosanitary measures to prevent the entry and establishment of plant pests, including plant disease causing organisms. The objective of those measures is (1) to reduce the risk of entry, establishment or spread of quarantine pests6 whose introduction and/or spread will result in economic losses and could require expensive eradication or control operations and (2) to reduce the impact of regulated non-quarantine pest7 (for example, if national nurseries are only allowed to produce virus free plants, imported plants of the same species must meet the same criterion).
