Hemp Diseases and Pests: Management and Biological Control: An Advanced Treatise Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hemp is enjoying a worldwide resurgence. This book combines a useful review of the hemp pest and disease literature published over the past 50 years, with up-to-date information on modern biological control techniques. Each pest and disease organism is presented in the same format, covering range and economic impact, symptoms, life history, diagnosis, and both new and old techniques for biological control and chemical control. Easy to use keys are included for rapid identification of the most common pests. Introductory chapters describe the general principles of plant protection, requirements for healthy plant growth, and taxonomy of parasites and pathogens.

Book News Annotation:

McPartland (U. of Vermont) and two members of the Amsterdam-based International Hemp Association review research published over the past half century, the earlier works much outdated, and the later scattered in the semi-clandestine grey literature of illicit growers. They begin with the prerequisite information about crop biology relating to principles of plant protection, requirements for growth, and taxonomy and ecology. Then they look at such diseases and pests as insects and mites, fungal diseases, abiotic diseases, and post-harvest problem. Finally they survey cultural and mechanical, biological, and biorational chemical control approaches. They include 86 color plates as well as many black-and-white illustrations.
