A Colour Atlas of Diseases of Lettuce and Related Salad Crops
Following the worldwide success of Dr Blancard's volumes on Tomato Diseases and Cucurbit
Diseases, the author and his colleagues have produced a further indispensable tool for the diagnosis,
understanding and control of parasitic and non-parasitic diseases of lettuce, chicory and endive. Section
One (some 200 pages) contains practical analytical text and over 500 superb colour photos and colour
diagrams, and includes systematic cross-referencing between similar-looking conditions, to help lead the
reader to the correct diagnosis. Section Two (some 140 pages) consists of Factfiles describing the pathogenic
organisms that affect the crops, their biological characteristics and appropriate methods of protection and control.
This is an important and lasting resource for growers and crop consultants, for scientists, instructors and students in
agriculture, agronomy, biology, horticulture, mycology and plant
pathology, and for serious gardeners.
