The Field Identification Guide is designed to assist producers, workers, students and consultants to correctly identify pests, diseases, disorders and beneficials of greenhouse vegetable crops in Australia.
Intended to be used as a tool in integrated pest management in greenhouse vegetables, it draws on the experience of a range of scientists and industry experts. The Field Identification Guide presents over 220 colour photographs in 135 pages of illustrations and text. It contains a comprehensive list of organisms and nutritional disorders identified as currently important to this industry.
Includes a fully linked index of species.
