This book explains holistic disease control through management of your structure, equipment, environment, and procedures.
From the Preface:
Between 1980 and 1990, enormous strides were made in the environmental technology available to growers of greenhouse crops, with matching increases in production potential. Little, if any, of this technology was aimed primarily at the reduction of loses from insects and diseases, but it is possible to manipulate a crop and its environment specifically for that purpose. Together with advances in biological control of disease, this greenhouse technology offers the grower opportunities to reduce the very costly input of pesticide applications and soil sterilization. At the same time, it can considerably reduce the escape of pesticides, fertilizers, and water into the environment outside the greenhouse and can ensure less pesticide residue on food and florist crops.
“Managing Diseases in Greenhouse Crops will stimulate growers and horticulturists to think in terms of crop protection, and exponents of crop protection to think how their science can be integrated smoothly into economic production practices. This hardcover book is fully referenced, will indexed, and for a technical reference, written in a language that is easily understood. Although the book was primarily written for greenhouse growers in the cooler regions of North America, the fundamental disease control measures outlined in the text are applicable to greenhouse growers across all climate zones.”-- Practical Hydroponics & Greenhouses
