Overview

The book presents strategies for the management of crop diseases, and explores means of integrating various strategies to achieve desired levels of suppression. It describes methods of preventing introduction of microbial pathogens, cultural practices that suppress pathogen populations, alternative soil treatments, resistant cultivars, biocontrol agents, biotechnology for improvement of disease resistance, and crop disease management using chemicals. The introductory chapters review the characteristics of microbial pathogens and the diagnosis of crop diseases caused by them.

This book provides the basic information on the characteristics of pathogens, and the methods for rapid detection and identification. The characteristics of crop diseases caused by microbial pathogens are described for a clear understanding of the different phases of disease development. The relative usefulness of different disease management strategies such as cultural practices, host resistance, use of biocontrol agents, chemical control and recent advancements in biotechnical approaches for disease management and methods of inducing resistance in susceptible cultivars using biotic and abiotic agents, is focused upon. The need for the integration of effective, economically viable and environment friendly disease control strategies to derive maximum benefit is indicated and development of such integrated disease management (IDM) systems is the urgent requirement to realize maximum net return to the grower. This book is designed to be a source of useful information to plant pathologists, microbiologists, botanists, physiologists, biochemists, agronomists and agriculturists, horticulturists, and upper level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciples.
