Botrytis cinerea, the agent of gray mold, are attacking more of 200 plant species and produce losses in postharvest products. Methods of control of this damaging fungus are reviewed in this article. Copper derived products are used and organic fungicide of few kind (boscalid, bezimidazole, carbendazim, propiconazole, and so on) as spray, some inorganic pesticide ZnO as nanoparticles. Organic natural derived substances produced by fungi Penicillium brasilianum Trichoderma, and bacteria Paenibacillus sp., can be use against Botrytis. The most interesting idea is the use of antagonists (bacteria and fungi) in biological control.

Key words: grey mold, chemical methods, copper sulphate, fungicides, biological control methods.
