Description

Both wheat and barley are two of the most important food and industrial crops in the world. Wheat and barley cultivation has experienced changes in practices due to factors such as methods of conservation agriculture, cropping systems, wheat varieties, changes in weather patterns, and international trade, necessitating new and different approaches for the successful management of emerging diseases and new pathotypes of pathogens. This valuable volume explores a multitude of new approaches and techniques for the effective management of emerging wheat diseases.

This new volumepresents the latest literature on management technology of diseases that affect the production of wheat and are capable of reducing grain yields as well as grain quality. These diseases include rusts, smuts, other foliar diseases such as blight, spots, blotch, powdery mildew, bunts, etc., as well as diseases such as Karnal bunt of wheat, which is of importance to international trade.

This book will be highly valuable to researchers, students, teachers, farmers, seed growers, traders, and other stakeholders dealing with wheat and barley. It also advances our knowledge in the field of plant pathology, plant breeding, and plant biotechnology, agronomy, and grain quality and pesticide industries. The book will serve as a reference on disease management technologies for the containment of losses in wheat and barley yields and will assist in maintaining wheat quality, reducing the cost of cultivation, increasing yield, and thus in helping to ensuring food security on a global level.

Reviews

"Brings together a broad wealth of updated information, new knowledge, and improved disease identification and management technologies from many expert scientists who are actively engaged in managing a diverse range of wheat and barley diseases. "

—Dr. Ravi P. Singh, Distinguished Scientist, Head-Wheat Improvement & Rust Research, Global Wheat Program, International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), Texcoco, México

"Up-to-date information and knowledge. This is a product of hard work by 43 expert contributors having experience and deep knowledge on wheat and barley diseases. The book divided into three parts and includes 24 chapters that are useful for extension and development workers, researchers, teachers, students, and even for policymakers. Part I: Disease Identification and Management Practices is of utmost importance for extension and service providers. Part II: Diseases in Diverse Agroecological Conditions and Part III: Pathogenic Variability and Its Management give broader aspects of some major diseases, including rusts and wheat blast, a new threat."

—Hira Kaji Manandhar, Professor of Plant Pathology (adjunct), Agriculture and Forestry University, Chitwan, Rampur, Nepal; Former Senior Scientist, Nepal Agricultural Research Council, Kathmandu, Nepal
