Publisher Comments:

Home gardeners can diagnose plant diseases correctly and treat them effectively using the least toxic methods available with the information provided in this comprehensive book. The ecologically minded gardener will understand the complex nature of plant pathogens and learn to identify symptoms of diseases and disorders. Information about the most common and devastating plant diseases that afflict trees, turf grasses, vegetables, and ornamental plants is given. Although a preventive approach is stressed, should diseases get a foothold, this book contains a thorough discussion of the range of the least toxic disease controls. Many of the remedies can be mixed from readily available ingredients and, when used responsibly, will protect the gardener and the environment.
