About this Item: Biotech Books/Daya Publishing House, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. Pests cause revere injury to horticultural crops in various ways, direct as well indirect. A classic in its own subject: this book contains necessary scientific information useful for recognizing the many symptoms of pest damage to horticultural plants and describes the different control measures: cultural, mechanical, physical, biological and chemical. The introductory chapter briefly describes the types of pests. their life histories, feeding habits and the general types of damages caused by them. Emphasising upon the fact that every part of a plant is apt to be attacked by one or more species of insect or related pest, the major portion of the book is divided into eight chapters corresponding to the main parts of the plant: bulbes, corms and tubers; roots; stems and shoots; buds; foliage; flowers; fruit; and seeds. The rigus of attack which may be found on that particular part of the plant are described under various sections, alongwith control methods. A set of indices (containing host plant index, Pest index and general index) has been provided in the book, so as to assist the reader in the diagnosis of damage.;Contents;Chapter 1: Introduction; The Plant as a Factor, Types of Pests, Life Histories of Pests, Feeding Habits, The Effects of Pests on Plants, Control Measures; (a) Cultural Control, (b) Mechanical Methods, (c) Physical Methods, (d) Biological Control, (e) Chemical Methods, Bibliography, Chapter 2: Bulbs, Corms and Tubers; Aphid Infested, Discoloured Externally, Discoloured Internally, Mite Infested, Tunnelled or Eaten, Chapter 3: Roots; Aphid Infested, Constricted, Eaten, With Frothy Masses, Galled, Over Developed, Rusty, Splitting, Under Developed, With Woolly Masses, Chapter 4: Stems and Shoots; Aphid Infested, Distorted, Dying Back, Bearning Egg Masses, With Frothy Masses, Galled, Gnawed or Rasped, Gumming, With Larval Colonies, With Lesions, Scaly, Severed, Tunnelled, With Wolly Masses, Chapter 5: Buds, Rendered Blind, Eaten, Galled, Proliferated, Swollen, Tunnelled, Chapter 6: Foliage; Aphid Infested, Blistered, With Honeydrew and Sooty Moulds, Discoloured; (a) Black or Brown Areas, (b) Bluish, (c) Bronzed, (d) Mottled, (e) Reddish Discoloration, (f) Rusted, (g) Silvered, (h) Spotted, (i) Veins Discoloured, (j) Yellowed, Distorted; (a) Bloated, (b) Curled, (c) Puckered, (d) Rolled, (e) With Swellings, (f) Twisted, Dropping, Eaten, (a) Clean Cut Holes, (b) Epidermis Eaten, (c) Perforated, (d) Notched, Excessively Hairy, With Froty Masses, Galled, Mined, Narrowed, Ragged, Scaly, Scarred, Severed, Spun Together, Wilting, With Woolly Masses, Chapter 7: Flowers; Discoloured, Distorted, Eaten, Withered, Chapter 8: Fruit; Blistered, Discoloured, Distorted, Dropping, Eaten Away, Punctured, Scaly Scarred, Spotted, Tunnelled, Warted, Chapter 9: Seeds; Attacked on the Plant, Attacked after Sowing, Attacked in Store, Chapter 10: Lawns; With Earth Mounds, With Torn Turf, With Withered Patches, Appendices; (a) Hot Water Treatment of Plants, (b) The Plant Hosts of Eelworm Pests, (c) The Prevention of Bird Damage, (d) The Control of Rats and Mice, (e) Useful Garden Formulae.
