Plant Nematode Control
Nematode pests of crops can cause major revenue losses for producers. It is therefore vital to recognize them and to apply appropriate measures to control them, as early as possible in the production cycle. Adequate nematode control is essential to the success of integrated crop management systems. This book covers control of the most important nematode pests of the world's crops, by all known, effective means.
The nematodes and the damage they cause to plant tissues and to cops in situ are fully illustrated by line drawings and by black-and-white and color photographs. Although the book is arranged by nematode pest species, the information relevant to a particular crop under threat is quickly accessed through a separate crop index. The book is an essential resource for all advanced students, lecturers and research workers in crop protection and plant pathology. Advisors to farmers will also find this book a useful addition to their crop protection libraries.
