  • B. M. Cooke

Benefits

  • Considers all aspects (pathogen diversity, legume genetics and breeding, and integrated disease management) of a very severe disease which affects large areas of grain legume production (pea, lentil, chickpea, faba bean) in all countries where they are cultivated

  • Considers the state of the art by taking a comparative approach of Ascochyta blight diseases of cool season food and feed legumes

  • Can be used by extension services to obtain references on the biology and ecology of the fungi and diseases

  • A reference for future research studies, students or teachers

About this book

Introduction

Ascochyta blights consistently affect large areas of grain legume production (pea, lentil, chickpea and faba bean) in all countries where they are cultivated. These diseases are capable of causing large yield losses under conducive environmental conditions. This book considers the state of the art by taking a comparative approach of Ascochyta blight diseases of cool season food and feed legumes. Topics considered are pathogen diversity, legume genetics and breeding, and integrated disease management.
