Diseases of Horticultural Crops: Diagnosis and Management

Diseases of Horticultural Crops: Diagnosis and Management

Plant diseases cause serious threats to the successful cultivation of horticultural crops resulting in huge losses in their yields. These plant diseases are known to affect horticultural crops at various growth stages and reduce the yield as well as quality of fruits and vegetables. Diseases also cause subsequent postharvest transit and storage losses. The volumes in this 4-volume set, Diseases of Horticultural Crops: Diagnosis and Management, provide the latest diagnostic information along with effective management solutions to the problems of field crop plants caused by phytopathogens. The volumes provide an abundance of information for understanding and managing plant diseases, with emphasis on diagnostic techniques. The collection includes four volumes that cover: Volume 1: Important fruit crops' Volume 2: Vegetable crops' Volume 3: Ornamental plants and spice crops' Volume 4: Important plantation crops, medicinal crops, and mushrooms. The destructive potential of plant diseases in modern day agriculture has increased due to the use of cultivars having a narrow genetic base over huge areas. Knowledge of perpetuation and spread of the pathogens and various factors affecting disease development is necessary for practical management. Disease diagnosis is the prime requirement for recommending preventive or curative measures for effective disease management. These volumes provide the information on the diagnostic tools necessary and management techniques for the various crop types. The chapters cover key diseases, typical symptoms, and management strategies. The volumes also include photographs that show symptoms of important diseases, which are helpful in disease diagnosis. This 4-volume set will be valuable to scientists and researchers, faculty and students, administrators, and many others in the discipline of plant pathology and related agriculture and allied fields.
