Plant diseases have the potential to wipe out entire crops, which would not only effect farmers, but everyone who depends on that crop for either food or plant-derived products (such as cotton). It is important and necessary to understand how a plant disease behaves and what factors contribute to large-scale outbreaks in order find strategies to prevent or manage the disease.
