Grass disease is one of the major limiting factors for the development of forage industries. At present, the development and utilization of resistant cultivar is the most economical and effective disease management strategies. Research on plant disease resistance mechanisms is essential for the development of resistant cultivar and the construction of eco-environmental friendly disease prevention and control measures. Plants form a variety of defense mechanisms when they are infected by pathogens. This study summarized the research advances relating to disease resistance mechanism, including tissue resistance, physiological and biochemical resistance, and molecular mechanism involving resistance genes and quantitative trait loci (QTLs) related to disease resistance traits. The major problems and opportunities for solutions in the research into resistance mechanisms of herbaceous plants are identified, which provides a theoretical basis for breeding of grass disease resistance.

Key words: herbaceous plants, disease, tissue resistance, physiology and biochemistry resistance, resistance genes, QTLs
