Development of nanoscience has provided several kinds of useful nanomaterials for biomedical applications such as drugs delivery systems, antibacterial or antifungal products and health care devices. Abundant studies of metallic nanoparticles have reported fortheir potential antibacterial property and exploited for practical applications. Moreover, several metallic nanoparticles have recently proven their strong inhibitory activity on plant-pathogenic growth. Thus, metallic nanoparticles could be utilized to develop a new generation of fungicides for agricultures inceusing of the chemical fungicides could pose some limitations such as harming to some beneficial microorganisms as well as human health.Moreover, accumulations of fungicide residues in agricultural products and underground water are also serious problems. Another drawback of fungicide usage is creating resistance of the harmful fungi which regenerates new strain of fungi without any known preventing approach. In the review, we focus on the effect of metallic nanoparticle on plant pathogenic microbes and the possibility of these nanoparticles in protecting plant thus providing currently knowledge of different metallic nanoparticles which have been reported their ability to control plant-fungal pathogens at laboratory scales and to treat fungi-infected plants.
