Diseases of Greengram and Blackgram

S C Agrawal (Author)
Synopsis A considerable amount of research work has been done on diseases of greengram and blackgram during last thirty years and a lot has to be done. The information generated is lying scattered and is not available to the scientists working on this aspect. There has been a long felt urgent need of compiling this information for accelerating the research and saving these important pulse crops from diseases. This book is a comprehensive and critical review of the world literature published on this aspect during 1918 to 1990. Diseases caused by various agencies are dealt in different chapters. A separate chapter has been included on seed pathology and storage. The information available on nematode diseases is very scanty. On virus diseses large number of publications have been made but in most cases incomplete study has been reported which creates lost of confusion. Many viruses have been mentioned as new reports without any proper identifications. Such viruses have been dealt in this book, as such. Future planning of research work on viruses needs careful thinking so as to avoid further confusion. This reference book primarily intended for plant pathologists involved in research on greengram and blackgram, will also be useful to teachers, post graduate students of plant pathology and the extension specialists interested in the development of pulses.
