Biological and Environmentally-Friendly Approaches

The control of diseases in crops is still largely dominated by the
use of fungicides, but with the increasing incidence of fungicide
resistance, plus mounting concern for the environment resulting
from excessive agrochemical use, the search for alternative,
reliable methods of disease control is gaining momentum.

The purpose of this important book is to examine the development
and exploitation (or potential for exploitation) of a range of
non-chemical approaches to disease control, with a focus on the
need for a greater understanding of crop ecology as the basis for
effective disease control in the field. Chapters in the book,
written by international experts in the subject area, include
coverage of:



  • biological control methods

  • host-plant resistance

  • the exploitation of tolerance

  • and the use of bacteriophages


Carefully edited by Professor Dale Walters, widely respected for
his work in the area of crop protection, Disease Control in
Crops
is an essential reference book for plant pathologists,
microbiologists, plant and agricultural scientists and crop
protection specialists, including those working within, and
providing consultancy to, the agrochemical industries. Libraries in
all universities and research establishments where biological
sciences and agriculture are studied and taught should have copies
of this timely publication on their shelves.
