Fungal postharvest diseases of horticultural crops cause significant economic losses every year. The principal genera of phytopathogenic fungi that cause crop deterioration and food poisoning are Alternaria, Aspergillus, Botrytis, Fusarium, and Penicillium. Synthetic fungicides constitute the primary control of fungal infections in vegetables. However, new alternative methods for disease control have been sought, considering the increasing resistance to these treatments and environmental-health risks. One of the alternatives explored is using reactive species of oxygen (ROS), nitrogen (RNS), and sulfur (RSS) because they are related to several biochemical functions in vegetables, which could trigger several responses to prevent and combat fungal infections. The next chapter shows the application of reactive oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur species for prolonging the shelf-life of horticultural crops.
