Combines theoretical principles with practical applications in dealing with viral, fungal and bacterial diseases of plants. Covers exclusion techniques, eradication by chemical or physical means, biological control, fungicides, pathogen free seeds and vegetative by: The Insect and Plant Disease Control Manual (Redbook) contains information on the preventative and control measure of various insects and diseases. Biological Control of Plant Diseases presents up-to-date research findings on disease management to provide you with a single-source reference text for developing a sustainable ecosystem that doesn’t depend on harmful and unhealthy agrochemicals. With growing consumer awareness about the dangers of garden chemicals, turn to The Organic Gardener's Handbook of Natural Pest and Disease Control (by Fern Bradley) as the most reliable and comprehensive guide on the garden shelf. Rodale has been the category leader in organic methods for decades, and this thoroughly updated edition features the latest science-based /5().
