Abstract

Infectious plant diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses, phytoplasma, and nematodes. Plant diseases have a significant effect on the plant quality and yield and they can destroy the entire plant if they are not controlled in time. To minimize disease-related losses, it is essential to identify and control pathogens in the early stages. Plant disease control is thus a fundamental challenge both for global food security and sustainable agriculture. Conventional methods for plant diseases control have given place to electronic control (E-monitoring) due to their lack of portability, being time consuming, need for a specialized user, etc. E-monitoring using electronic nose (e-nose), biosensors, wearable sensors, and ’electronic eyes’ has attracted increasing attention in recent years. Detection, identification, and quantification of pathogens based on electronic sensors (E-sensors) are both convenient and practical and may be used in combination with conventional methods. This paper discusses recent advances made in E-sensors as component parts in combination with wearable sensors, in electronic sensing systems to control and detect viruses, bacteria, pathogens and fungi. In addition, future challenges using sensors to manage plant diseases are investigated.
