About this book

This highly-informative monograph will provide a basic reference on coffee rust for both investiga-tors in the field and those en-tering it. The research con-ducted has been organized based on principles of epidemiology and plant disease management, provid-ing both theoretical and practi-cal information. This approach enables discussion of the past, present and future of coffee rust research in broad plant patholog-ical areas of biology, epidemiol-ogy, genetics and breeding for disease resistance, fungicide technology and application, and disease management. In addition, an analysis of epidemics, breed-ing programs, and other rust man-agement practices in India, Kenya and Brazil are included. This new text will contain over 45 figures and 40 tables for both investigators in the field and those just entering it.
