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 contains practical analytical text with over 500 superb color photos and diagrams and includes systematic cross-referencing between similar-looking conditions, to help lead the reader to the correct diagnosis.
Section Two 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.
