Book Description :

This book is a compilation of the most challenging and significant chapters on the diagnosis and management of important bacterial, fungal, viral, viroid, phytoplasma, non parasitic diseases and various physiological disorders, in various crops. The chapters have been contributed by eminent plant pathologists, having wide experience of teaching and research on various crops with different types of diseases, which cause great economic losses. The book would be very useful for students, teachers and researchers of plant pathology. This book highlights recent advances made in the development of new types of resistance in host plants and alternative strategies for managing plant diseases to improve food quality and reduce the negative public health impact associated with plant diseases. Having entered into 21st century advancements in the Diagnosis of Plant Pathogens and Plant Disease Management need to be closely examined and adequately applied, so that newer challenges facing plant pathology could be adequately addressed in attaining food security for the growing population. Substantial advancements have been made in terms of expanding knowledge base of the biology of plant-microbial interactions, disease management strategies and application and practice of Plant Pathology. Application of molecular biology in Plant Pathology has greatly improved our ability to detect plant pathogens and in increasing our understanding, their ecology and epidemiology. Similarly, new technologies and resources have been evolved for the development of sustainable crop protection systems by different control strategies against various pests and pathogens that are important components of the integrated pest management programme. Natural products and chemical compounds discovered as a result of basic research and molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis have led to the development of “biorational” pesticides. Biological control has been found to be the most significant approach to plant health management during the twentieth century and promises using modern biotechnology, to be even more significant in the twenty-first century.

Book Description :

This book is based on EU-funded project PLANTFOODSEC, covering intentional and unintentional threats to plant biosecurity and to food safety areas. Biosecurity is a strategic and integrated approach for analysing and managing relevant risks to human, animal and plant life and health, and associated risks to the environment. Interest in biosecurity has risen considerably over the last decade in parallel with the increasing trade in food and plant and animal products; higher levels of international travel; new outbreaks of transboundary diseases. Although most diseases outbreaks have natural causes or are the result of inadvertent introductions of pathogens through human activities, the risk of a deliberate introduction of a high consequence plant pathogen cannot be excluded. Vigilance is required to identify, prevent and manage new and emerging issues that could impact on production capacity, plant biosecurity or food safety and food chain resilience. /div

Book Description :

This book titled "Sustainable Disease Management of Agricultural Crops" is based on plant disease management by means of sustainable manner. In developing country, sustainable Agriculture is to maintain food production or more realistically, to maintain an increasing trend in food grain production while preserving the underlying resource base. This book will give broader sense of sustainability which can be defined as "maintaining an increasing production trend to ensure food security with future dimensions." Adequate food grain production and ensuring an equitable distribution is a global concern in present scenario. The continued growth of agricultural sector should not be at the cost of soil, plant and environment. Plant diseases have been of great concern to the Indian Agriculture. The multiplicity of crops, tropical and sub-tropical climate, over lapping growing seasons, different varieties, production system and varying cultural practices favour the occurrence of number of plant diseases. The changed agricultural scenario has to focus our attention to check plant diseases, cut crop losses, avoid wide fluctuation in production and sustain higher levels of productivity. The book contains adequate sustainable eco-friendly disease management information related to disease rsistance, integrated disease management, soil solarisation, transgenic crop, organic disease management and biopesticides in disease management biological control, use of bacteriophage in disease management, important mushroom diseases and their management etc. The chapters are devoted to the management of major diseases of vegetables, cereals, medicinal plants, pulses and fiber crops. The wide range of issues discussed in all chapters will help to generate new ideas towards disease management strategies. This book will be helpful for graduate as well as post-graduate students of Plant Pathology and will also be useful for various competitive examinations with agriculture as a subject.

Book Description :

This book contains fuller versions of the papers and posters presented in the Knowledge and Technology Transfer and Teaching Plant Pathology sessions at the 9th International Congress of Plant Pathology held in Turin, Italy in 2008. Communication is an essential area for plant pathologists and it is not just the publication of results in the scientific press that is important. In a world where there is a major shortage of food and where a significant amount of it is destroyed by pests and diseases before it ever reaches the consumer, it is important to provide support to those who produce the food in order to reduce the losses. Reducing crop losses not only has an impact on health, but also wealth and, therefore, the ability to survive. With an ever-increasing demand on food supplies due to increases in population, and changes in life-style associated with rising incomes in certain parts of the world, plant pathologists have a pivotal role to play in contributing to global food security. Aspects of crop protection have lost favour with the general public because of concerns about environmental pollution and genetic modification of crops. This has had a ‘knock on’ effect in the recruitment and training of crop protectionist in g- eral and a concomitant impact on courses available at universities. However, it has never been more important to train people with good communication skills and an ability to solve problems to tackle the complexities of pathogen and plant interactions.

Book Description :

Nanotechnology can target specific agricultural problems related to plant pathology and provide new techniques for crop disease control. Plant breeders and phytopathologists are needed who can apply nanogenomics and develop nanodiagnostic technologies to accurately advance the improvement process and take advantage of the potential of genomics. This book serves as a thorough guide for researchers working with nanotechnology to address plant protection problems. Novel nanobiotechnology methods describe new plant gene transfer tools that improve crop resistance against plant diseases and increase food security. Also, quantum dots (QDs) have emerged as essential tools for fast and accurate detection of particular biological markers. Biosensors, QDs, nanostructured platforms, nanoimaging, and nanopore DNA sequencing tools have the potential to raise sensitivity, specificity, and speed in pathogen detection, thereby facilitating high-throughput analysis and providing high-quality monitoring and crop protection. Also, this book deals with the application of nanotechnology for quicker, more cost-effective, and precise diagnostic procedures of plant diseases and mycotoxins. Applications of nanotechnology in plant pests and disease control, antimicrobial mechanisms, pesticides remediation and nanotoxicity on plant ecosystem and soil microbial communities are discussed in detail. Moreover, the application of specific nanomaterials including silver, copper, carbon- or polymer-based nanomaterials and nanoemulsions are also discussed. Crops treated with safe nanofertilizers and nanopesticides will gain added value because they are free of chemical residues, decay and putative pathogens for human health, sustaining the global demand for high product quality.

Book Description :

Four years ago, my health began deteriorating with a blood pressure reaching 200–250. I became anemic, lost about 20–23 kilograms within a short period, and developed severe abdominal pain followed by rectal bleeding. I was told I had a large rectal tumor that needed to be urgently removed. I was shocked and frightened. I traveled to Canada for a second opinion. After laboratory tests, it was a stage 3–4 colorectal cancer nearly obstructing my large bowel. I was subjected to an aggressive long cycle radiation and chemotherapy treatment followed by complex surgeries for years, after which I was declared cancer free. While in the hospital, particularly following the nine-hour surgery for tumor removal, I could not regain rapidly my vital signs—meaning, I was dead in medical terms. However, by the Lord’s grace, I opened my eyes. My spouse and I had several dreams pointing to a spirit of death rooming around me. As the scripture in Job 33:14–18 says, “For God does speak, now one way, now another in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men as they slumber in their beds. He may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings.” I surely knew that believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and having faith in the Heavenly Father will instantly turn my desperate situation into a joyful one. I committed my time to reading regularly the Bible, and my family, relatives, and friends all over the world prayed for my healing and recovery. As written in Psalms 130:1, “Out of the depths, I cry to You, O Lord.” Together, we pleaded unto him, and he lifted me from down the valleys to the tops of mountains. Continual prayers acted as a strong medication to cure the illness.

Book Description :

This book looks at the current state of food security and climate change, discusses the issues that are affecting them, and the actions required to ensure there will be enough food for the future. By casting a much wider net than most previously published books—to include select novel approaches, techniques, genes from crop diverse genetic resources or relatives—it shows how agriculture may still be able to triumph over the very real threat of climate change. Food Security and Climate Change integrates various challenges posed by changing climate, increasing population, sustainability in crop productivity, demand for food grains to sustain food security, and the anticipated future need for nutritious quality foods. It looks at individual factors resulting from climate change, including rising carbon emission levels, increasing temperature, disruptions in rainfall patterns, drought, and their combined impact on planting environments, crop adaptation, production, and management. The role of plant genetic resources, breeding technologies of crops, biotechnologies, and integrated farm management and agronomic good practices are included, and demonstrate the significance of food grain production in achieving food security during climate change. Food Security and Climate Change is an excellent book for researchers, scientists, students, and policy makers involved in agricultural science and technology, as well as those concerned with the effects of climate change on our environment and the food industry.
