of Information on the Known Pathogens of Pearl Millet, Pennisetum
glaucum (L.) R. Br.
by Jeffrey P. Wilson
Cultivation of pearl millet
for grain and forage is expanding into nontraditional areas in temperate
and developed countries, where production limits from diseases are assuming
greater importance. The crop is host to several diseases caused by bacteria,
fungi, viruses, nematodes, and parasitic plants. This handbook gives
the symptoms, characteristics, host range, geographic distribution,
nomenclature discrepancies, and likelihood of seed transmission for
these diseases. This book will provide useful information to plant pathologists,
plant breeders, extension agents, and regulatory agencies for research,
diagnosis, and policy making. Black and white, 58 pp.
