Diseases of Fruit Crops in Australia is the new standard reference in applied plant pathology in Australia covering important diseases affecting the broad range of fruit and nut crops grown throughout Australia. It is an essential tool for growers, horticulturists, crop consultants, research scientists, plant pathologists, quarantine officers, agribusiness representatives, pest management personnel, educators, and students.
The book is generously illustrated with high quality colour images to help diagnose diseases and explains how to identify and manage each disease, describing the symptoms of the disease, its importance, the source of infection and spread and control measures. It will be useful to plant scientists wherever these fruit crops are grown.
Based on the highly regarded 1993 edition of Diseases of Fruit Crops, this new work updates management practices that have evolved since then. Importantly, it contains the latest information on diseases that have recently emerged in Australia as well as exotic diseases that are biosecurity threats to Australian fruit and nut production.
"…more photos have been added. And they are absolutely fantastic! A joy to look at, in the macabre way of plant pathologists, that is! Are there any reasons not to rush out to get a copy? Not really."-- Pestnet
"Diseases of Fruit Crops in Australia is a worthy addition to the bookshelves of all those involved in the fruit industry business as well as the enthusiastic home gardener and hobby farmer. It should become the new standard reference in applied plant pathology in Australia." -- Plant Protection Quarterly
