About this book

The Compendium of Alfalfa Diseases and Pests, Third Edition, is the most comprehensive diagnostic reference guide to date on the many diseases and insect pests of alfalfa, one of our most important forage crop. This easy-to-use book includes comprehensive diagnostic and management information on nearly 50 infectious diseases, non-infectious diseases, insect pests, and abiotic conditions (like herbicide injury).

This third edition, written by more than 55 expert plant pathologists and entomologists working on alfalfa, delivers an almost entirely new collection of 270-plus color images, revised management information, the addition of five recently discovered diseases, and an entirely new section covering alfalfa's arthropod pests. Some pests can significantly decrease yield and this new section describes and illustrates their life cycles, behaviors, and damage symptoms, along with management practices.

The Compendium of Alfalfa Diseases and Pests, Third Edition is essential for researchers and practitioners worldwide. Extension scientists, consultants, field staff, and growers will find Compendium of Alfalfa Diseases and Pests helpful for identifying and managing alfalfa pests and disorders. Plant pathologists, entomologists, and their staff in laboratories, diagnostic clinics, regulatory agencies, and the classroom will also find Compendium of Alfalfa Diseases and Pests to be an invaluable reference.
