About this book

Please note that the publisher nowadays only prints this book on-demand and all the images (despite the title) are in black and white. The original print run that had colour images in it has sold out.

Covering the most important pathogens, this handbook provides clear, concise descriptions of the symptoms and cycles of diseases, their distribution and economic importance and advice on their control. The text is illustrated with some 250 black-and-white photographs of affected crops to aid in the rapid identification of disease. The book also includes `pest profiles' that identify, with the use of colour photographs, the pests that commonly prey on potato crops.
