PCR technology can provide very accurate quantitative data required for control and quarantine decisions. The ability to design PCR primers to target specific regions of DNA has led to rapid, accurate, and sensitive detection which is a greater understanding for managing Colletotrichum diseases. The development of species-specific primers has provided a powerful tool for the detection of plant pathogens. The identification of fungal pathogens based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using species-specific primers is now widely used, especially for economically important plant pathogens such as quarantine listed fungi or those that are difficult to isolate or cause symptomless.
