About this book

Diseases of Vegetable Crops in Australia provides a diagnostic guide and a key reference for diseases affecting vegetable crops in Australia. This is an extensively revised and expanded edition of a previous publication that was a standard reference for the Australian vegetable industry. Authors from across Australia provide essential information about the important diseases affecting most vegetables grown across Australia's diverse horticultural production areas. The book includes an account of the causes of plant diseases and the principles underlying their control. It provides an overview of important diseases common to many Australian vegetable crops. Causal pathogens, symptoms, source of infection, how the diseases are spread and recommended management are described for 36 major and specialty crops. Special reference is made to exotic diseases that are biosecurity threats to Australian vegetable production.

The text is supported by quality colour images to help growers diagnose diseases. This handbook is for growers, their consultants and managers, horticulturists, plant pathologists, plant protection diagnosticians, integrated pest management specialists, educators, students and agribusiness representatives, as well as the enthusiastic home gardener and hobby farmer. This title is written in a straightforward style with a minimum of scientific terms. It includes an introductory chapter that outlines the causes of diseases and principles of management. Each disease is extensively illustrated with high quality colour photographs. This title features over 190 pages of colour plates. It contains a comprehensive glossary and provides up-to-date sources of further information.
