"Botanically speaking, tomato is a fruit. But by common understanding it is often considered a vegetable as well. Regardless of which term you use, tomato is the most "Googled" fruit and one of the most commonly grown. Unfortunately, tomato plants are also a common target for many diseases and pests, affecting production for anyone growing the crop, including commercial producers trying to maximize yield and the small scale gardener who wants flawless and flavorful garden fresh tomatoes for salads, cooking, and canning. Enter Compendium of Tomato Diseases and Pests, Second Edition. The nearly 250 images and associated information in this highly useful and significantly upgraded book allows anyone-from the gardener to professional-to identify, understand, diagnose, and treat more than 60 diseases of tomato occurring throughout the world. This impressive new handbook, written by expert plant pathologists working with this crop, includes nearly 20 new diseases and disorders, including those caused by fungi and oomycetes, bacteria, phytoplasmas, viruses and viroids." -- Publisher's description.

Despite their reputations as hardy plants with relatively long shelf lived, these closely-related vegetables are subject to blights, smudges, yeast, rots, stains and molds. This account considers all of them, infectious and not, at an international level, giving a general description of each disease, its importance, world distribution, symptoms, causes, disease cycle and epidemiology, management and recent research. Entries cover diseases of subterranean and aerial parts caused by fungi and oomycetes (such as Fusarium diseases, leaf blight, downy mildew, rust and smut), of bulbs caused by fungi (black or blue mold, mushy rot and smudge), and those caused by bacteria and yeast (sour skin, center rot, yeast soft rot), nematodes (needle and sting nematodes), viruses and phytoplasmas (garlic mosaic, iris yellow spot), and parasitic flowering plants (dodder). This also covers pests (maggots, leafminers, cutworms) and noninfectious or abiotic conditions (lightening injury, mineral deficiencies and greening abnormalities). Includes photos and glossary.

Onions and other vegetable alliums

The edible alliums are some of the most ancient cultivated crops and include onions, leeks, shallots garlic and chives. They are grown in most regions of the world, from the subarctic to the humid tropics, although bulb onions are best adapted to production in subtropical and temperate areas. This book introduces the scientific principles that underlie production practices. It begins by discussing the classification, origins, distribution and economic importance of the major food alliums, before considering their structure, genetics and breeding. Chapters then follow on the physiology of crop growth, development and yield, on crop production and on flowering and shoots, and a chapter is devoted to the storage and dormancy of both types. Pests, diseases and weeds are then discussed, before a final chapter on the biochemistry and food science of alliums. The book is written at a level suitable for students of horticulture, crop science and food science, as well as for growers and crop consultants interested in the scientific principles that form the basis of their practice. It also provides a valuable example of how the different disciplines within plant sciences interrelate when applied to particular crops.
