Pepper (Capsicum) is one of the most produced horticulture commodity in Indonesia as well as in the world which can be used as both fresh or cooked vegetables, herbs, spicy, pharmacy and other industries. Pepper production is constrained by numerous stress caused by abiotic and biotic agents which can led to decrease in production quantity and quality. Utilization of resistance varieties is more reliable and efficient. This can be achieved by performing many breeding programs to produce new resistant peppe varieties. Rapid development of new pathogen strains and insect herbivore biotypes had forced plant-breeding program to be conducted as fast and as efficient as possible. Advances in plant biotechnology may help to speed up plant-breeding program through integration of both technologies.
