About this book

Take-all is the most important root disease of cereals worldwide. Regarded by many experts as intractable because of the lack of economic chemical controls and resilient cultivars, it remains one of the great challenges of plant pathology. This book comments on recent research, focusing on Western Europe.

"With wheat continuing to be one of the world's major food crops, any disease that threatens it is of concern. Take-all disease is no exception; it . . . continues to cause major losses in much of the world's wheat growing areas . . . It has been 18 years since the last major book on take-all disease was published. The emphasis of this book is on Western European research . . . There is a very complete bibliography that includes references published since 1980. . . . One of the values of this book is the detail presented through the use of 107 figures and 78 tables. Many of these illustrations have not been previously published, and thus serve as a tremendous resource of new information. . . . This book is certainly a 'must-have' for all scientists involved in take-all research, and is highly recommended for those who are involved in small grain cereal production or are working in the area of soilborne plant diseases."--Quarterly Review of Biology
