Description

Following the worldwide success of Dr. Blancard's volumes on Tomato Diseases and Cuncurbit Diseases, the author and his colleagues have produced a further indispensable tool for the diagnosis, understanding, and control of parasitic and non-parasitic diseases of lettuce, chicory, and endive.

Two sections comprise this essential handbook. The first contains practical analytical text, over 500 color photos and diagrams and includes systematic cross-referencing between similar-looking conditions to help lead the reader to the correct diagnosis. The second section consists of Factfiles describing the pathogenic organisms that affect the crops, their biological charcteristics, and appropriate methods of protection and control.

This guide is vital for every scientist, instructor, and student in agriculture, agronomy, biology, horticulture, mycology, and plant pathology, as well as serious gardeners and crop consultants.
