Moringa plant follows Moringaceae family, which includes about 13 plant species .The most famous of these species type are   Moringa oleifera followed by African moringa (Moringa estenobitala) then Egyptian Moranga (Moringa briggrana). Moringa is considered a model plant for cultivation in desert areas in newly reclaimed lands, where it bears drought, salinity and high temperatures as well as this tree carry many humanitarian aspects of the poor for being a food supplement for humans and animals Numerous studies in many countries of the world noted that ,the plants Moringa is a  vegetable crop , herb medical and is the source of oil production as well as their use in water purification and nutrition of humans and animals .The most dominant investigations on Moringa oleifera .

Many studies and projects have been conducted abroad to take advantage of Moringa in all medical , industrial fields and agricultural .In agriculture ,many formers  uses extracts tonic natural plant and then use it sprayed on corn, wheat, rice and sugar cane plants and others to increase growth and yield as well as the use of seeds and remnants of her time in the feed manufacturing. Also been using leaves extract in the treatment of seeds before planting a stimulant for the germination and thus helps the seed and seedling small escape from injury of soil borne pathogens . Also we can  used moringa extracts against  many fungi, bacteria and viruses that affect humans .

Recently , In Egypt Moringa oleifera has expansions and the cultivation beginning of the 2010 season where it was cultivation of tens of thousands of seedlings during the years 2011 and 2012 in order to increase consumer demand for all its products . As a result of the expansion in the cultivation of moringa in Egypt ,headed vision to maximize the benefit of this blessed tree, especially in the field of combating plant pests, especially in the field of production of natural compounds (natural pesticides) from this tree, and use these natural compounds as alternatives to chemical pesticides against many pathogens that cause a significant loss in the quantity and quality of many agricultural crops. In this concerns Prof. Dr. Riad Mohamedy professorof fungi and plant pathology at Department of Plant Pathology, National Research Center conducted a number of research (publication in magazines specialized scientific) for the use of leaves, roots, seeds and pods extracts and casings seeds as well as extracted from the seed oil as natural compounds (natural biocides) against three groups of plant Pathogenic fungi  . The first group represents the fungi that cause disease wilt and rot the roots and the second group represents the fungi that infect shoots, fruits, flowers and the third group represents a fungal disease in many agricultural crops before and after harvet and during storage. Studies have proved that all the extracts of Moringa have an effective in inhibiting the growth and sporulation of  all fungi under study. He observed that the Moringa seed oil leaves extract and roots have significant effect especially against soil  borne fungi, which calls for use of many pesticides harmful chemical polluters to resist  . Notably, he was noted that  Moringa plants do not infected with any plant pathogens  and the results showed that the plant Moringa is resist to 8 fungi, which cause rot the roots and wilting of many plants. As a result complement these promising results (laboratory) experiments as these extracts and oil plant moringa conducive to the growth and sporulation  up to 100% of any match or exceed some of the pesticides and chemical.

So in many experiment applied under field conditions ,Plant Pathology Department and participate with the Egyptian Association for Scientific moringa, National Center to evaluate and study the impact of extracts, seed of  moringa and  chitosan (a natural compound) in combating disease early (blight) on tomato and potato crops . The results showed that these natural compounds have the effect of effectively (inhibitor of fungi and tonic of resistance in the plant) in the controlling disease resemble the effect of the fungicide .Moreover improve the growth and yield of the plant treatment approximating without treatment. Rate of decline in the intensity of infection blight on potatoes by up to 80% and an increase in yield of up to more than 65% due to spray a compound of the extracts and oil of the plant Moringa Oliveira .Now,  we applied extracts of moringa directly under field conditions for controlling many plant diseases on some economic crops, especially under organic farming system ,and nit has already been reached promising results in the first season 2014/2015 for the cultivation of potatoes, wheat and beans due to the use of natural pesticides from producer Moringa plant.
