Sugarcane pathology. Volume 3, Bacterial and nematode diseases

Rao G.P. (ed.), Saumtally A.S. (ed.), Rott P. (ed.). 2004. Enfield : Science Publishers, 355 p..

This book details the current status of research being conducted worldwide on bacterial and nematode diseases of sugarcane. The subject matter deals with new biotechnological and molecular tools for diagnosis and characterization of bacterial and nematode pathogens and reliable detection of these pathogens in infected samples. Important nematode species associated with sugarcane have been described in detail in this book. Their characterization, diversity, economic importance and biological status have also been discussed. It will stimulate further research on sugarcane diseases and will serve as an important reference for students and scientists involved in sugarcane and related crops.
