Main pests and diseases of cotton in sub-Saharan Africa
While reading Main pests and diseases of cotton in sub-Saharan Africa, you really begin to feel sorry for the cotton plant and increasingly appreciate your cotton wear. Bear in mind that this booklet only deals with the main pests; it leaves weeds aside, for instance. It is a concise and clear manual enabling cotton growers to recognise what might be attacking their crop. This can vary from the entire range of flying, creeping and sucking insects to leaf and vascular diseases and mineral deficiencies. Three hope-giving pages provide information on beneficials predators and parasitoids in controlling insect pest populations. With an average of two beautiful colour photographs per page, it is a very attractive booklet on a perhaps less attractive subject. Main pests and diseases of cotton in sub-Saharan Africa By M Vaissayre & J Cauquil, CIRAD-CTA, 2000. 60 pp. ISBN 2 87614 416 6 CTA number 1012. 10 Credit points
