The 3rd in the series "Plant Pathogens: Characterization, Diagnosis and Management", this volume contains 19 chapters on the taxonomy, characterization, diagnosis and management of vegetable and pulse viruses. Topics consisted of: Tospovirus (chapter 1); Cucumber mosaic virus infecting vegetable and pulse crops (2); Potyviruses infecting grain legumes (3); Geminiviruses infecting legumes (4); Pecluviruses (5); Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (6); Pepper golden mosaic virus [Serrano golden mosaic virus] and related Geminiviruses affecting tomato (7); Pepper yellow mosaic virus (8); Tobacco streak virus of vegetable crops (9); virus diseases of chickpea (10); virus diseases of pigeon pea (11); Ilarvirus from cowpea (12); Cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus (13); Cucurbit aphid-borne yellows virus in Spain (14); Turnip mosaic virus (15); Carrot motley dwarf virus complex (16); viruses associated with the lettuce big-vein disease (17); Pepino mosaic virus (18); and Bhendi yellow vein mosaic virus (19). This book will be useful to everyone interested in plant virology, plant pathology, disease control and plant biology.

Legg, J.P.; Kumar, P.L.; Kanju, E. (CABI Wallingford, 2015)Cassava 'brown streak' disease (CBSD) is an economically important constraint in important cassava-growing areas of East, Central and Southern Africa. In addition to causing a dry necrotic rot in the tuberous roots of infected plants, which can render them inedible, CBSD depresses yields through reducing plant growth. This pandemic of CBSD is driven by the high abundance of the whitefly vector, Bemisia tabaci, coupled with uncontrolled movements of infected cuttings used as planting material. This ...
Sequencing wild and cultivated cassava and related species reveals extensive interspecific hybridization and genetic diversity Bredeson, J.V.; Lyons, J.B.; Prochnik, S.E.; Wu, G.A.; Ha, C.M.; Edsinger-Gonzales, E.; Grimwood, J.; Schmutz, J.; Rabbi, Ismail Y; Egezi, C.; Nauluvula, P.; Lebot, V.; Ndunguru, J.; Mkamilo, G.S.; Bart, R.S.; Setter, T.L.; Gleadow, R.M.; Kulakow, P.A.; Ferguson, M.; Rounsley, S.; Rokhsar, D.S. (2016-04-18)Cassava (Manihot esculenta) provides calories and nutrition for more than half a billion people. It was domesticated by native Amazonian peoples through cultivation of the wild progenitor M. esculenta ssp. flabellifolia and is now grown in tropical regions worldwide. Here we provide a high-quality genome assembly for cassava with improved contiguity, linkage, and completeness; almost 97% of genes are anchored to chromosomes. We find that paleotetraploidy in cassava is shared with the related rubber ...
Bhattacharjee, R.; Gockowski, J.; Asare, R.; Muilerman, S. (2012-03)STCP tools for the rehabilitation of West African cocoa farms Cacao tree stocks in West Africa are mainly established from seeds procured from farmers’ fields. This planting material lacks the disease tolerance and yield potential of the hybrid seed. Productivity is also affected by the old age of West Africa’s tree stock. Replacing and rehabilitating the tree stocks of West Africa is fundamental to the achievement and long-run sustainability of a cocoa Brown Revolution. The STCP has developed a ...
