Subtropical Fruit 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 sub-tropical fruit crops (mango, and grape vine) using physical methods, cultural methods, botanical pesticides, chemical pesticides, bioagents, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, and host resistance are discussed.
