Product Description

The Compendium of Strawberry Diseases, 2E, is designed to aid plant pathologists and other agricultural workers in the diagnosis of strawberry diseases.  It is designed especially for extension or advisory plant pathologists who have access to a microscope and for plant pathologists who have limited experience with strawberry diseases.  The compendium should also be useful to plant disease consultants, advisers in state agriculture departments and federal regulatory agencies, agri-business representatives, county agricultural agents and area specialists, teachers of plant pathology and vocational agriculture, students, growers, and researchers in all countries where strawberry is grown.

The second edition has been greatly revised.  Although containing fewer pages, it incorporates more information, with up-to-date contributions by authors from around the world, and more color plates than the first edition, to increase its usefulness for quick and accurate disease and pest identification.  Greater emphasis also has been placed on diseases of paramount importance in strawberry culture internationally, such as anthracnose, Botrytis rot, and virus and viruslike diseases.  The revised edition reflects changing cultural methods, cultivars and expansion of strawberry culture as a major crop in many countries, from the humid tropic climate of Indonesia to the cold temperate climate of Scandinavia.
