"Botanically speaking, tomato is a fruit. But by common understanding it is often considered a vegetable as well. Regardless of which term you use, tomato is the most "Googled" fruit and one of the most commonly grown. Unfortunately, tomato plants are also a common target for many diseases and pests, affecting production for anyone growing the crop, including commercial producers trying to maximize yield and the small scale gardener who wants flawless and flavorful garden fresh tomatoes for salads, cooking, and canning. Enter Compendium of Tomato Diseases and Pests, Second Edition. The nearly 250 images and associated information in this highly useful and significantly upgraded book allows anyone-from the gardener to professional-to identify, understand, diagnose, and treat more than 60 diseases of tomato occurring throughout the world. This impressive new handbook, written by expert plant pathologists working with this crop, includes nearly 20 new diseases and disorders, including those caused by fungi and oomycetes, bacteria, phytoplasmas, viruses and viroids." -- Publisher's description.

Tomato Diseases

Release Date: 2012-08-15
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Following the successful first edition, this revised and greatly expanded edition Tomato Diseases: Identification, Biology and Control is the definitive work on the diseases and disorders of the tomato. The tomato is the world’s most widely produced vegetable. The number of diseases affecting the tomato is enormous: hundreds of bio-aggressors, more than 50 non-parasitic diseases, plus new and alarmingly frequent emerging diseases. Despite considerable progress to curb these diseases, they remain a constant threat to crops, often causing considerable damage. In such a context, the identification, detection, knowledge and control of these diseases—symptoms often can be very similar—are challenges that this book will help overcome. Containing more than 900 color photos, the book consists of two main parts. The first is designed as a diagnostic tool, allowing the reader to alternate between the observation of the diseased plant, environmental questions, and the prioritization of differential diagnoses. The second part comprises numerous information sheets detailing the characteristics of most tomato pathogens, geographic distribution, impact on production, types of symptoms, and life history of the plant. This section also describes the range of plant protection and disease resistance measures currently available. This unique volume is a comprehensive overview of the latest scientific knowledge on parasitic and non-parasitic tomato diseases worldwide. It will address the needs of tomato producers and keen gardeners, as well as those of researchers, teachers and their students.

Compendium of Onion and Garlic Diseases and Pests

Author: Howard F. Schwartz
Publisher: Amer Phytopathological Society
ISBN: 0890543577
Release Date: 2008-01-01
Genre: Science

Despite their reputations as hardy plants with relatively long shelf lived, these closely-related vegetables are subject to blights, smudges, yeast, rots, stains and molds. This account considers all of them, infectious and not, at an international level, giving a general description of each disease, its importance, world distribution, symptoms, causes, disease cycle and epidemiology, management and recent research. Entries cover diseases of subterranean and aerial parts caused by fungi and oomycetes (such as Fusarium diseases, leaf blight, downy mildew, rust and smut), of bulbs caused by fungi (black or blue mold, mushy rot and smudge), and those caused by bacteria and yeast (sour skin, center rot, yeast soft rot), nematodes (needle and sting nematodes), viruses and phytoplasmas (garlic mosaic, iris yellow spot), and parasitic flowering plants (dodder). This also covers pests (maggots, leafminers, cutworms) and noninfectious or abiotic conditions (lightening injury, mineral deficiencies and greening abnormalities). Includes photos and glossary.

Seismic Petrophysics in Quantitative Interpretation

Author: Lev Vernik
Publisher: SEG Books
ISBN: 9781560803249
Release Date: 2016-10-15
Genre: Science

Exploration and characterization of conventional and unconventional reservoirs using seismic technologies are among the main activities of upstream technology groups and business units of oil and gas operators. However, these activities frequently encounter difficulties in quantitative seismic interpretation due to remaining confusion and new challenges in the fast developing field of seismic petrophysics. Seismic Petrophysics in Quantitative Interpretation shows how seismic interpretation can be made simple and robust by integration of the rock physics principles with seismic and petrophysical attributes bearing on the properties of both conventional (thickness, net/gross, lithology, porosity, permeability, and saturation) and unconventional (thickness, lithology, organic richness, thermal maturity) reservoirs. Practical solutions to existing interpretation problems in rock physics-based amplitude versus offset (AVO) analysis and inversion are addressed in the book to streamline the workflows in subsurface characterization. Although the book is aimed at oil and gas industry professionals and academics concerned with utilization of seismic data in petroleum exploration and production, it could also prove helpful for geotechnical and completion engineers and drillers seeking to better understand how seismic and sonic data can be more thoroughly utilized.
