About The Books

The information on pest and disease management under protected cultivation of horticultural crops is very much scattered. This volume deals with pests and diseases of fruit crops and their management using regulatory, physical, cultural, chemical, biological, host resistance and integrated methods. This book offers a comprehensive review of diseases of important tropical and some subtropical fruit crops. The control of diseases of each host crop are covered, along with brief summaries, origins and characteristics of each host. Additional information is given on the pathology of the causal agents that change or otherwise enhance our understanding of the nature and causes of these diseases. The book will be of significant interest to those working in the areas of plant pathology, tropical agriculture and tropical horticulture, policy-makers and practising farmers.
