Cotton grown in numerous countries over five continents, the top five producers being China, the former Soviet Union, India and Pakistan. It is an important cash crop in several African countries, and production in Australia has increased greatly over the last fifteen years. Crop losses due to disease are significant, and this book provides a comprehensive review of work published on the subject. Six chapters are written by the editor, who also has extensive experience in Africa, and the remainder by authorities from the UK and USA. Diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, viruses and nematodes, as well as nutrient deficiency disorders are covered, and illustrated with a number of color plates. The book is a definitive reference volume for plant pathologists and cotton agronomists.
