Leguminous Vegetable Crops

  • P. Parvatha Reddy


Economic importance and losses, symptoms/damage, pre-disposing factors, epidemiology, survival and spread, and biointensive integrated management of insect and mite pests, fungal, bacterial, viral/mycoplasma diseases, nematode pests, and disease complexes of Leguminous vegetable crops (pea, French bean, cowpea, pigeon pea, field bean, and cluster bean) using physical methods, cultural methods, botanical pesticides, chemical pesticides, bioagents, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, and host resistance are discussed.
