Compendium of Cotton Diseases, Second Edition
Edited by TL Kirkpatrick, CS Rothrock
Compendium of Cotton Diseases, Second Edition provides practical, up-to-date
information on the diagnosis and control of cotton diseases worldwide. This new edition begins
with an overview of the origin and evolution of cultivated cotton and a description of the growth
and development of the plant, which is fundamental in disease diagnosis and effective
management strategies. Expanded disease sections include detailed pathogen descriptions,
characteristic symptoms that occur, the disease cycle, and control information. Includes twice
as many color photographs as the first edition.
100pp, 115 col photos, 32 b+w illus ISBN 0890542791
Additional improvements include:
greater attention to noninfectious disorders, including nutritional disorders, herbicide injury and toxicity, and environmental stresses.
- sections on common disease interactions, host plant resistance to pathogens, and general principles of disease management in integrated production systems.
This useful reference is ideal for growers, crop consultants, researchers, extension agents, students, teachers, libraries, and anyone who works with cotton.
