Abiotic Disorders In Plants

Abiotic Disorders In Plants

Plants can be damaged by infectious microbes such as fungi, bacteria, viruses, and nematodes. They can also be damaged by noninfectious factors, causing problems that can collectively be termed "abiotic diseases" or "abiotic disorders". For the purposes of this article we will refer to them as abiotic disorders. Unfavorable soil properties, fertility imbalances, moisture extremes, temperature extremes, chemical toxicity, physical injuries, and other problems are examples of abiotic disorders that can reduce plant health and even kill plants. Furthermore, many of these abiotic disorders can predispose plants to diseases caused by infectious microbes.
