Product description

From the Back Cover

This collection reviews advances in understanding key diseases and insect pests of tree fruit. Part 1 summarises current research on what causes key fungal diseases (apple scab, powdery mildew, apple replant diseases, apple canker and brown rot), bacterial and viral diseases (fire blight, brown spot, apple mosaic virus and plum pox). Building on this foundation, Part 2 discusses integrated fruit disease management techniques such as surveillance, breeding disease-resistant varieties, improved fungicide application as well as the use of biocontrol agents.

The second half of the book focuses on the ecology of major insect pests (aphids, tortricid moths, mites, mirids, fruit flies and apple maggot flies). Building on this foundation, the final part of the book reviews ways of improving integrated pest management (IPM) techniques for tree fruit, from monitoring and forecasting to agronomic practices to methods of biological control.

With its distinguished editors and expert team of chapter authors, this will be a standard reference on understanding and managing key diseases and insect pests of tree fruit.
