This comprehensive new diagnostic and management guide is the largest, most comprehensive APS compendium published to date. Nearly triple the thickness of the previous edition, it collectively covers nearly 150 diseases, pests, and disorders of blueberry, cranberry, and lingonberry. It is ideal for large and small commercial growing operations and nurseries, as well as the advisors that serve them, including universities, Extension offices, independent consultants, and diagnostic labs.
The highly anticipated second edition of this book, published nearly two decades after the first edition, offers the most practical, up-to-date, and comprehensive information available for diagnosing and managing diseases and disorders of blueberry (highbush, lowbush, and rabbiteye), cranberry, and lingonberry. It includes nearly 400 images and management recommendations from top researchers across the world. Using this book will allow growers to more confidently scout, identify, and manage problems in the field before they become economically significant.
The Compendium of Blueberry, Cranberry, and Lingonberry Diseases and Pests, Second Edition, is organized into four major parts:
• Infectious Diseases, including anthracnose fruit rot, bacterial canker, fairy ring, leaf mottle
• Noninfectious Disorders, such as cold injury, nutritional disorders, oxygen deficiency injury
• Insect Pests, including aphids, blueberry blossom weevils, cranberry fruitworms, leaf rollers
• Blueberry Certification, a section that offers current and comprehensive information to help growers develop and comply with blueberry plant certification standards and practices. The certification program helps ensure that only high-quality plant material free of targeted plant pathogens passes through the blueberry production chain.
In addition to a useful glossary and index, this new edition includes an appendix that identifies the common names of diseases of blueberry, cranberry, and lingonberry, along with the pathogens that cause them.
