The concept of immunity against myriad phytopathogens was studied extensively in crops. The commercially important rubber clones were developed with a major focus on the quantity and quality of the latex yield generated from a limited genetic base thus were prone to pathogen infections which hamper the production. Though control measures like chemical treatments were available, the economic feasibility and ecological impact of such treatments were unfavourable. To lower the economic losses caused, crop improvement programs now investigate methods to remedy the incomplete understanding of the resistance mechanisms and augment the inherent immunity observed in wild-type counterparts of these commercial cultivars over implementation of inter-species resistance genes.
