Most European countries are investing in research to reduce reliance on pesticides and the risks associated with their use. At this moment, farmers’ access to a wide range of pesticides is predicted to become limited due to legal regulations regarding sustainable use of pesticides. Therefore, the modern farmers will have to incorporate innovative pest and disease management approaches to reduce their dependency on pesticide use. This study presents an overview about the recent results on the efficacy of natural products obtained from plant extracts to control tomato seedlings damping off disease. It was already demonstrated that several plants contain secondary metabolites that are toxic to plant pathogenic microorganisms infecting horticultural crops, especially on the early emergence of the disease. The rich phenolic compound solutions possess antimicrobial effects and serve as plant defense mechanisms against plant pathogens. For using these products with reproducible efficiency, it is important to compare their mode of action for the optimization of the manufacturing process, the stabilization of these preparations, dates and rates of application.
