Description

The production of mushrooms (Agaricus bisporous) is a major, world-wide, highly mechanized process. Healthy crops are essential if yields, quality and profitability are to be maintained. This book covers the recognition, biology, and control of pests and diseases which are a major cause of crop losses. Up-to-date and intensely illustrated, Mushroom and Disease Control fully explores the important aspects of pest and disease control. From changes in the management of pest and pathogen populations and new methods of crop production to the more effective use of environmental controls and environmental protection, this book provides an essential guide for crop grower and all those closely connected with the culture of the crops. Check lists for pest and disease control and hygiene applications provide practical applications for readers as well.
