About this eBook

Preface In India, plantation crops earn foreign exchange of over Rs. 3700 million annually, which amount for 3 4lh of our earning from exports of agricultural commodities. Diseases play a vital role in the production of plantation crops. Because of the paucity of books dealing with diseases of plantation crops, there has been a great demand by students and teachers of plant pathology in India for a comprehensive book on the same. This area of plant pathology has received poor attention compared to others. Though the research is progressing fast, compilation of the available information is rather slow. Hence, it was considered desirable to bring out a more comprehensive book on diseases of plantation crops and their management for the benefit of students, teachers, research and extension workers who are interested and engaged in the field of plant pathology. We hope this publication will satisfy the long felt need of students, teachers and extension workers. In this book, we are dealing with the diseases of major plantation crops like arecanut, coconut, pepper, betelvine, cardamom, cashew, cocoa, coffee, tea, ginger, turmeric, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Description on important diseases includes the symptoms, aetiology, epidemiology and integrated management. In the preparation of this book, we have referred various publications of both Indian as well as foreign scientists on the subject. We acknowledge our sincere gratitude to all the authors. We don t claim perfection and we are fully aware of the fact that there may be some errors, omissions in this publication. It will be really appreciated if the readers can kindly point out the deficiencies, errors or omissions of any nature. Sincere efforts will be made to rectify them while bringing out the next edition of the book.
