Combines a useful review of the hemp pest literature published over the past 50 years, with up-to-date information on modern biological control techniques.
"Spending several years on this project, McPartland et al have produced a useful and beautiful tome. Their work combines a review of the relevant literature published over the past half century with modern information on biological control techniques (the 22-page bibliography might be worth the cost of the book itself to some). Each pest and diseases organism is presented in similar, encyclopaedia-style format. Entries cover factors like economic impact, geographical and host-plant range, plant symptoms, taxonomic description, life history, and differential diagnosis. Excellent line drawings and photographs (including 86 colour plates) complement the information. As well, introductory chapters describe general principles of plant protection, requirements for healthy plant growth and the taxonomy of parasites and pathogens. ... Thorough, colourful and engrossing, Hemp Diseases and Pests is a hemp publishing event. Recommended."--The Hemp Commerce & Farming Report
