Cercospora leaf spot (CLS) of sugar beet is the most important foliar disease of sugar beet and occurs wherever the crop is grown. The disease has been documented for over a century and can result in significant yield reduction and sugar loss. Research on CLS has been ongoing over the same time period to promote understanding and enhance management of the disease. The research done has been reported in a wide range of journals, requiring extensive searches to locate information on the disease.

For the first time within a single publication, Cercospora Leaf Spot of Sugar Beet and Related Species offers a historical overview and covers the biology (taxonomy, ecology, epidemiology and toxins) and comprehensive (traditional and novel) management of the disease. Considering recent advancements on CLS research, this book shall serve as a comprehensive source of information on CLS to researchers, sugar beet growers, and the industry.

Features and Benefits:

  • Comprehensive information on biology of Cercospora beticola provides needed basic information to mycology and plant pathology researchers and students.
  • Extensive information on breeding and resistance provides assistance to breeders.
  • A range of management techniques to help growers, extension personnel to understand and make good decision when managing CLS.

From the Preface:

The volume begins with introductory information on the history of sugar beet as source of sugar, emergence of CLS as a problem, ecology, and the epidemiology of the disease. Under the section “Biology of Cercospora beticola,” the first subsection deals with taxonomic information including speciation and host range of C. beticola, mating types, and vegetative compatibility. The subsection on ecology and epidemiology presents information on survival, spore trapping, dispersal, and primary infection. Other subjects presented encompass the relationship of C. beticola with host plants and fungal antagonists and CLS of vegetable crops in the Chenopodiaceae. The final subsection offers information of Cercospora toxins, with references to specific aspects of cercosporin and beticolin. The final section deals with management of Cercospora leaf spot of sugar beet.
