of Field Crops in Canada
Canadian Phytopathological Society in 2003 published a great resource
on diseases of field crops, "Diseases of Field Crops in Canada."
This publication is a comprehensive, illustrated guide to identifying
diseases of wheat, barley, corn, canola and mustard, pea, lentil,
chickpea, sunflower, alfalfa, rye and triticale, oats, and flax.
It bridges the gap between technical detail useful to professional
plant specialists and practical information for students, seed growers,
and farmers wanting to identify and control crop diseases. It contains
304 pages with 659 color figures and 10 disease cycle diagrams in
an 8-1/2 x 11" soft cover, coil bound format. Both foliar and
root diseases are covered in the booklet. Each disease section includes
a description of the symptoms, the disease cycle, and general methods
of control. There is a description on the Web at http://www.cps-scp.ca/publications.htm.
Dr. Tim Paulitz, Plant Pathologist, Root Disease and Biological
Control Unit, Pullman, WA, has worked with the editors to offer
this publication at a rate of $20.00 US. Please contact Tim to receive
