Stem and pod rots caused by Sclerotium rolfsii affect groundnut crops in many countries, reducing yields by 10-25%. Pod losses can reach over 80% in heavily infested fields. Stern and pod rots of ground-nuts summarizes the considerable progress that has been made in understanding the epidemiology of the diseases. Effective greenhouse and field-screening techniques have been developed, resistance sources identified, and some resistant cultivars bred. Options for disease management are discussed, and an integrated disease management approach is advocated.
