Bulbous, Cruciferous and Malvaceous Vegetable Crops

  • P. Parvatha Reddy


Symptoms, biomanagement and integrated management of fungal, bacterial and viral diseases, nematode pests, disease complexes and insect pests of bulbous (onion and garlic), cruciferous (cabbage and cauliflower) and malvaceous vegetable crops (okra) using PGPR alone or PGPR integrated with physical and cultural methods, botanicals, bioagents and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are discussed.
