About this book

Compendium of Potato Diseases, Second Edition includes up-to-date information on diseases and disorders affecting potatoes worldwide. Since its first publication 20 years ago, key pathogens and management practices have greatly expanded, and the international importance of many pathogens has changed. Strengthened with nearly 200 color photographs, this practical reference will help growers and their advisors in the field make accurate diagnoses and improve disease control. Includes many diagrams that further illustrate symptoms and causal agents of diseases. This new edition covers the most current information available on potato diseases and provides easy-to-understand descriptions of diseases. Growers, crop consultants, extension agents, researchers, students, teachers, and everyone who works with potatoes will find Compendium of Potato Diseases useful for studying, diagnosing, and managing potato diseases.

" [...] a valuable source of information for anyone working with potatoes."
Nematolgia Meditterana

" [...] concise but comprehensive information on all important potato diseases [...] remarkably good value. I recommend it unreservedly as a primary and authoritative source of current information for all research, development and extension workers interested in potato pathology, to students at all levels and to potato growers."
Journal of Phytopathology

" [...] of immense value to anybody working on disease of potato, particularly those involved in disease diagnosis and consultancy. [...] The contributors and publishers are to be congratulated on maintaining the high standards of the APS Disease Compendium Series."
