Product Description


Since the first edition of this book published in 1991, there have been major changes in production and practices that provide fresh raspberry and blackberry fruit all year long. Production under tunnels is now standard practice in many regions for extending the season and for protecting fruit from moisture to reduce fruit rot. Organic production has increased significantly, which brings new challenges in disease and pest management. Spotted wing drosophila has become a major pest of raspberry and blackberry in many parts of the world since 2008. Many new viruses have been identified, increasing the complexity of disease management. 

Significant advancements in management of diseases and pests of raspberry and blackberry in the past 26 years are covered in detail. The second edition  also includes an appendix that identifies common names of diseases, along with their pathogens.
