How to use "Nonresistant" in context?

Since the late 1800s, scientists in the field of biosecurity have been studying methods of controlling plant diseases without relying on plant resistance. One theory suggests that gene mutation could eventually lead to resistance in pathogens, and so scientists have turned instead to using nonresistant plants to control disease.

Unlike resistant plants, which are engineered to possess certain defensive characteristics, nonresistant plants do not typically develop resistance to pathogenic organisms. This makes them a appealing option for controlling plant diseases, as it keeps populations of pathogens in check without the need for any added chemicals or management.
