Several small molecules of natural origin have been shown to act as alternatives to synthetic fungicides for biological control of fungal diseases of grapes and other crops. The small molecule chemical discussed here include: acetaldehyde, acetic acid, aldehydes (other than acetaldehyde), ascorbic acid, ethanol, ethylene, jasmonic acid and methyl jasmonate, salicylic acid and methyl salicylate, salts (e.g. sodium bicarbonate, calcium chloride, copper sulphate), sorbic acid and sulphur. The additive or synergistic effect of these molecules when used in combination is also discussed. Roles played by these molecules in biological control are reviewed in this chapter with some new ideas about possible developments.
