Viral diseases of ornamental plants cause major losses in productivity and quality. Host pl1ant resistance offers an effective means of controlling plant diseases caused by viruses. It minimizes the necessity for the application of pesticides. However, there are many ornamentals in which no natural disease resistance is available. Genetic engineering allows the introduction of specific, in some instances broad spectrum , disease resistance derived from other species , or even from the pathogen it self into plant genotypes that have been selected for desirable horticultural properties.
