Excerpt from Handbook of the Diseases of Vegetables: Occurring Under Market, Storage, and Transit Conditions

This handbook is designed primarily to aid the inspectors of the Bureau of Markets in the detection and identification of plant diseases as they occur in vegetables under transit, storage, and market conditions.

The entire inspection service and the survey and study of vegetable crop diseases under transit and market conditions, were begun but little more than a year ago, consequently this handbook, an outgrowth of that survey and study, is necessarily incomplete. The text and illustrations are the property of the United States Department of Agriculture, and are not to be used in any published form whatsoever. The description of the signs, symptoms, or effects of each plant disease is followed by a statement of the geographic distribution and the seasonal or climatic relations of the disease so far as they are known, since some diseases occur only in certain districts and often only under certain conditions.

A statement is made as to the time and place of inception, development, and spread of the disease. This is especially important from a market point of view. For example, in placing the responsibility for the poor condition of a shipment caused by bacteria or fungi, it is essential to bear in mind that some diseases are field infections and do not develop nor spread in transit or storage; that others are field infections which develop or progress but do not spread in transit or storage; that others are field infections which develop and spread under transit and storage conditions; and finally that a number are transit and storage infections of stock perfectly sound when harvested.

It is fully realized that at present not all decay can be referred to clearly defined causes.
