Pearl Millet Diseases
A Compilation 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.
