About this book

Accurate information on disease diagnosis and management is essential for sustainable crop production. "Diseases of Fruit Crops in Australia" provides comprehensive coverage of important diseases affecting the broad range of fruit and nut crops grown throughout Australia. Written in a practical, straightforward style, it explains how to identify and manage each disease, describing the symptoms of the disease, its importance, the means of infection and spread, and control measures. Based on the highly regarded 1993 edition of "Diseases of Fruit Crops" published by the Department of Primary Industries & Fisheries, Queensland, this new work updates management practices that have evolved over the last 15 years and includes new diseases not previously described. Special reference is made to exotic diseases that are biosecurity threats to Australian fruit and nut production.

The text is supported by quality color images to help growers diagnose diseases. It will become the new standard reference in applied plant pathology in Australia for fruit crops. This book is written in a straightforward style with a minimum of scientific terms. It provides accurate information about significant diseases affecting 17 major and 14 specialty fruit crops in Australian tropical and temperate regions. Each disease is extensively illustrated with high quality color photographs. This book contains a comprehensive glossary and provides up-to-date sources of further information. It describes key exotic diseases that are biosecurity risks to Australian fruit growers.
