Containing an extensive range of photographs and authored by leading horticultural experts, this book is an indispensable reference work for horticultural professionals, academics, students, crop producers as well as amateur horticulturists.

The diseases of major crops are presented according to their classification, and the symptoms of each disease, causal pathogen and control measures for each condition are described.

The crops covered include the major temperate horticultural crops, organised into easy to navigate sections divided into fruits, vegetables and ornamentals. Within fruits, apples and pears are discussed, as well as ribes and berries, cherries, peaches and plums, nut crops and rhubarb. The vegetable section covers salad crops, brassicas and crucifers, cucurbits, root vegetables, bulb crops, solanaceous vegetables and some herbs. The section on ornamental plants includes a wide range of ornamental garden plants, while a further section discusses diseases of turf grass and ornamental lawns.

The book is user-friendly with practical, accessibly written entries organized into discrete sections. The comprehensive nature of this work makes it an invaluable addition to any horticulturist's library with content that will remain current for years to come.
