Quick Overview

IK Bacterial Wilt of Solanaceous Vegetables: 2016 Edition

Bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum is one of the most important diseases of solanaceous vegetables, viz., tomato, eggplant, chili and pepper and potato in India and the world. The disease is serious and soil-borne in nature and damage of crop is widespread and loss is significant. Several researches on understanding nature of pathogen and ways and means of mitigation of the loss have been done in India and abroad but those are not available at one place and pose problems to seekers of information. In this book the information scattered in various forms of literature (1896-2014) is collected and systematically compiled crop-wise in seven chapters. The importance of the above solanaceous vegetables and their nutritive value, pathogen and bacterial wilt has been discussed in the first chapter. The symptomatology of diseases with photographs, their etiology, distribution of race biovars and their diagnosis, morphological, biochemical physiological characteristics of pathogen, pathogenecity, serodiagnosis, molecular diagnosis and protocol for detection of R. solancearumin soil and plant has been discussed in the second chapter. The maintenance and preservation of culture has been included in the third chapter. Genomics and mechanism of pathogenesis has been discussed in the fourth chapter. Research work done on losses and epidemiology has been compiled in the fifth chapter in which the detailed information on survival and host range has also been included. In the sixth chapter management of diseases has been discussed under sub-sections viz; Integrated disease management, cultural, crop rotation, soil amendment, biological, host resistant, induced systemic resistance and chemical. Conclusion and future research has been discussed in chapter seven. This compilation will be useful for persons engaged in research, teaching and extension. The book will be useful for the post-graduate and Ph. D students, researchers, extension workers as well as educated farmers to help enhance knowledge about bacterial wilt of solanaceous crops and their scientific way of management to reduce crop losses.
