Diseases and Pests of Ornamental Plants
Discusses diagnosis and treatment of diseases and organisms afflicting nearly 500 genera of ornamental plants grown outdoors, under glass, or in the home. Explains when and how to use the most effective fungicides, insecticides, and other control materials and practices. The fifth edition of the official publication of the New York Botanical Garden identifies new diseases, recognizes the spread of many known diseases to a wider range of host plants, and reflects up-to-date control methods. New illustrations have been added and there are expanded discussions on fungicides, bactericides, and miticides.
