The Compendium of Bean Diseases is the first book in the Compendium of Plant Disease Series
Disease management must be both economical and compatible with the environment and production system. Thus, the book presents many disease management recommendations that may be adapted to a wide range of cropping conditions. This information is useful in the field, laboratory, or diagnostic clinic. It will be helpful to plant pathologists, crop production specialists, crop consultants, growers, diagnostic clinicians, regulatory agents, agribusiness representatives, educators, researchers, students, extension specialists, county agents, and others interested in the recognition or management of bean diseases throughout the world.
Whether they are called peppers, chiles, paprika, or ajis, plants in the genus Capsicum, are among the most important spice and vegetable commodities worldwide because they are used in so many different types of food. Like other crops, peppers are afflicted with diseases, disorders, and pests that can reduce fruit quality and yield.
This easy format allows the user to quickly identify signs and symptoms of important diseases and pests occurring throughout the world—in the greenhouse, in the field or garden, and in transit to the market.
