Leguminous Vegetable Crops

  • P. Parvatha Reddy


Symptoms, biomanagement and integrated management of fungal, bacterial and viral diseases, nematode pests, disease complexes and insect pests of leguminous vegetable crops (pea, French bean, cowpea, pigeon pea and cluster bean) using PGPR alone or PGPR integrated with physical and cultural methods, botanicals, bioagents and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are discussed.
