Life on Earth is exposed to a variety of light spectrum from ultraviolet-B to wavelengths, called natural radiation. The electromagnetic spectrum ultraviolet (UV) consists of 3 classes: UV-A (315-400 nm), UV-B (280-315 nm) and UV-C (200-280 nm), with UV-A and UV-B reaching only the surface of the earth. UV radiation affects plants and fungal pathogens by altering the relationship between them (Figure 1). In this paper, we study the applicability and the effect of ultraviolet radiation on plant protection against phytopathogenic fungi. Thus, this review offers a comprehensive overview to help growers and scientists to create informed decisions for ultraviolet treatments in various applications.
