The most effective, economic, and environmentally sound approach of managing crop disease in today's world is by breeding crops resistant to disease. Handbook of Molecular Technologies in Crop Disease Managment provides a top-to-bottom detailed view of crops, from their molecular level to ways to manipulate a higher resistance to disease through breeding. This comprehensive, single-source reference text covers the entire field of molecular breeding, transgenic technology, molecular plant pathology, and molecular disease diagnostics, presenting it all in clear, understandable language. The book contains an extensive bibliography and provides several tables and figures to clearly reinforce crucial points.
