Compendium of Umbelliferous Crop Diseases provides an international account of umbelliferous crop diseases and practical guidelines for control. The compendium begins with an overview of the origin and domestication of carrots and celery, carrot and celery production, the causes of umbelliferous crop diseases, and information pertaining to breeding for disease resistance. In addition to carrots and celery, diseases of parsnip, cumin, coriander, parsley, caraway, and cilantro are included.
The compendium describes infectious diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, nematodes, viruses, and phytoplasmas as well as noninfectious disorders caused by air pollution, allelopathy, mineral deficiencies and toxicities, pesticide-related injury, and many others. The description of each disease includes a general overview of its importance and world distribution, symptoms, causal organism or agent, disease cycle and epidemiology, control, and selected references. Control measures stress general principles and cultural practices that apply to most growing areas.
This useful reference is ideal for plant pathologists, crop production specialists, growers, diagnostic clinicians, students, regulatory agents, crop consultants, educators, researchers, extension personnel, and others interested in the diagnosis or management of diseases of umbelliferous crops throughout the world.
