With an emphasis on plant viruses and virus control methods that have a significant economic impact, 32 chapters present information on diseases which affect fruits, grains, sugarcane, potatoes, peanuts, and other crops. The chapters are organized into sections on: conventional, biochemical, and molecular approaches to resistance building; control of viral vectors; quarantine and certification; elimination; and detection. Eighteen additional chapters discuss the present status of disease control for specific viruses and viroids from around the world, examples of which include barley yellow dwarf virus, rice tungro virus, and tomato yellow leaf curl disease.
