About this book

Covering the most important pathogens, this handbook provides clear, concise descriptions of the symptoms and cycles of diseases, their distribution and economic importance and advice on their control. The text is illustrated with some 250 superb colour photographs of affected crops to aid in the rapid identification of disease. The book also includes `pest profiles' that identify, with the use of colour photographs, the pests that commonly prey on potato crops.
