Greenhouse operations have been viewed by many as a means to diversify and improve farm income. These new growers are trying to take advantage of vegetable crop production which, in general, has higher return per unit area than agronomic crops. In addition, greenhouse vegetable growers have recently been able to benefit from the increased demand for specialty horticultural crops, a category which encompasses greenhouse vegetables. Vegetables, i.e. Sweet pepper, Tomato, Cucumber, Cantaloupe which grown under protected cultivation system are represent Egypt's largest national crops export. Plant diseases represent an important role of growing vegetables under protected cultivation system and considered a serious problem and limiting factor for their production. Vegetables production in Egypt, is threatened by a large number of fungal, bacterial and viral diseases as well as by pests and insects vectors viral diseases which cause considerable loss in Egyptian quantitative and qualitative vegetables yield. Overall, most vegetable crops under protected cultivation system suffered losses due to the favorable conditions for most diseases as high humidity and temperature.
