Fusarium oxysporum is the main casual of the tomato root rot disease in Early blight plants. Moreover, Rhizoctonia solani are highly destructive pathogens of both greenhouse and field grown tomatoes causing damping-off diseases. Many strategies to control these diseases and others on tomato, have been developed. However, the major component used in integrated pest management (IPM) studies was the chemical fungicides. The implication of chemical fungicides in soil and water pollution has mandated the search for alternative approaches to disease control management.
