Ascochyta blights consistently affect large areas of grain legume production (pea, lentil, chickpea and faba bean) in all countries where they are cultivated. These diseases are capable of causing large yield losses under conducive environmental conditions. This book considers the state of the art by taking a comparative approach of Ascochyta blight diseases of cool season food and feed legumes.

Topics considered are pathogen diversity, legume genetics and breeding, and integrated disease management.

Of interest to scientists, university teachers, students, extension services.
