This book is a complete source of valuable, current information on important plant virus diseases. It will serve as a practical resource, guiding its readers toward the development and application of novel technologies for plant virus disease control. Several chapters summarize current information about plant virus diseases of crops including corn, wheat, barley, oats, rice, sugarcane, bean, faba bean, peanut, potato, tomato, cucumber, citrus, stone fruits, banana, and cassava. Drawing from field experience, the authors help readers understand and meet the challenge involved in achieving successful control strategies. The table of contents is as follows:
