Use the updated information and 122 color photographs in the Compendium of Sorghum Diseases, Second Edition to prevent, diagnose, and control sorghum diseases. Major revisions were made in the sections covering ergot and diseases caused by Fusarium species. Up-to-date coverage on the recent advances made in sorghum diseases caused by viruses, bacteria and selected fungi is included. The section on abiotic diseases is particularly significant considering the extensive acreage of sorghum grown in poor soils and hot, dry climates.

New developments covered in the second edition allow users to follow current pathogen terminology with the inclusion of updated smut fungi names and gain insight into the ongoing investigation of the taxonomic relations of fungi such as Fusarium spp. and Colletotrichum spp.

In addition to the comprehensive coverage of more than 60 diseases and disorders, this book includes a section on beneficial microorganisms associated with sorghum, and a ready reference to insect and mite problems.

Compendium of Sorghum Diseases, Second Edition is ideal for growers, crop consultants, plant scientists, extension specialists, educators, students, county agents and others interested in sorghum disease diagnosis and control.
