Plant Diseases and their Biological Control
A. Singh
Indiscriminate use of pesticides has harmed the mankind, animals, environment and ecology. The development of resistance in some pathogens against fungicides, lack of reliable chemical control measures and also the lack or non availability of resistant varieties to major diseases in some crops led to search of alternative means for disease control. The alternatives are those refered to as biological controls. The biological control refers to the purposeful utilization of introduced or resident living organisms, other than disease resistant host plants, to suppress the activities and populations of one or more plant pathogens. The microorganisms have come under focus for the management of diseases due to their unique ability to survive in the ecosystem and reducing the severity of the diseases. The present book Plant Diseases and their Biological Control incorporates the critical reviews and research articles on biological control of pathogens. Important articles are on Biological Control as an Ecological Safer Technology, Biocontrol through Microbes and Endomycorrhiza, Mitigating Plant Disease through Cultural Practices, Mechanism of Action of Biocontrol Agents, Potential Application of Trichoderma, Mass Production and Formulation of Bioagents, Plant Disease Management through Diversified Cropping Systems, Biological Control of Rice Blast and Pigeon Pea Wilt, Molecular Advances of Disease Management in Indian Mustard, Development of Pseudomonas Fluorescens based Biopesticides, Biocontrol of Chilli Leaf Curl Disease and Rot of Ginger, Biotechnological Approaches for Disease Management in Forest Trees, Biological Control of Postharvest Diseases of Fruits, Marker Assisted Selection for Resistance Improvement in Potatoes, Agonistic Phyllosphere Consortium of Microbes in the Development of Disease of Fern and Biological Control of Jatropha Plant Diseases. The book will be useful and widely accepted by students, teachers, researchers, Botanists, Plant Pathologists, and Agriculturists. ..more

Eco-Friendly and Non Hazardous Management of Pests
T. SinghK. Agrawal
Plant diseases were known to man when organized agriculture came into existence and when man had to move to other areas in search of food. In spite of many thousand years of progress in human civilization, based on great scientific advances and also the opening of new frontiers in scientific agriculture, it remains a stark truth even today that a very large proportion of world population still remains underfed, undernourished or even starved. Disease is a state of abnormality, which develops through interaction of a host and parasite under suitable environmental conditions. The plant diseases can be efficiently controlled by the application of chemicals such as fungicides, bactericides, insecticides etc., but these are not permanent methods and on the contrary they pollute the environment and at times are hazardous to human health. Hence, there is need to reduce the load of synthetic chemical pesticides in an effort to provide for safer foods and a cleaner environment. Development of breeding of disease resistant varieties of crop plants is also an efficient, practically feasible and economically ideal method of disease management. Now more use of physical methods, bio-pesticides and exploitation of native plant resources in plant protection is needed. Scientists world over have paid attention to develop eco-friendly and non-hazardous means of plant disease control. This book, Eco-friendly and non-hazardous Management of Plant Diseases is a unique and comprehensive book with critical reviews in the area. The book contains 24 chapters which include information regarding management of plant diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, nematodes and insects mainly of cereals, pulses, spices, vegetables, fruits mushrooms etc. The various eco-friendly management measures discussed include use of physical and cultural methods of microbial antagonists, botanicals, VAM fungi etc. The book shall be of a great help to teachers, researchers, students and persons engaged in the field of Seed Technology, Plant Pathology, Seed Pathology, Horticulture, Agro-forestry, Entomology, Nematology and others interested in different branches of Botany and Agriculture. ..more
