Product Description

Compendium of Barley Diseases, Second Edition is a complete and up-to-date treatment of barley diseases and is international in scope.  It has been written to aid all those who deal with barley production problems, including barley growers, county extension agents, malting and brewing company field personnel, and hail insurance adjusters, as well as agronomists and plant pathologists.  Many illustrations accompany the text, and a glossary, index, and selected references are also inluded.  In this Second Edition, special attention has been given to presenting descriptions of newly reported diseases, updating the descriptions of symptoms and pathogens, adding citations of literature published since the First Edition was issued, bringing disease and pathogen nomenclature up to date, and improving and supplementing the illustrations.  Approximately 70% of the color photographs presented here were not previously published in the First Edition.

Barley, a small-grain cereal, is used for a variety of purposes.  Its principal use is in animal feed and its second major use is in malting and brewing.  In many parts of the world, barley is consumed in soups and dressings and as a milled product in bread and breadlike foods.  Recently, it has been used in breakfast cereals as an alternative to wheat and oats.  Cultivars high in beta-glucans are especially valuable because of the role of these compounds in promoting good health.

Barley is grown in most temperate regions of the world, at elevations from sea level to high in the Andes Mountains of Peru.  Where drought, summer frost, or alkaline soils are a problem, it is one of the most dependable cereal crops.  However, it grows best where the ripening season is long and cool, rainfall is moderate, and soils are well drained.  As a winter crop, it is more hardy than oats but less hardy than rye or wheat.  In recent years, barley has been produced on 91 million hectares worldwide.
